The islands of Jersey and Guernsey are collectively known as the Channel Islands and are one of those anomalies that make Europe so attractive. They are part of Great Britain, but not part of the UK. They are self-governing entities ‘owned’ by the Queen in her role of Duchess of Normandy. This is, of course, merely a hereditary situation, but the islands were the personal possessions of William the Conqueror in 1066, at the time he led Norman forces into Britain and won the Battle of Hastings. They remained his personal possessions and have been passed on from monarch to monarch for more than 950 years. Located just off the French coast, not too far from St. Malo, the islands were occupied by German forces during WW2, and are now readily available by ferry or airplane from both France and Britain. There are actually five inhabited islands, of which Jersey and Guernsey are the largest. Alderney, Sark, and Herm make up the others. Ferries link the islands, and tourism is a major activity of the islands, along with banking. Most visitors arrive on Jersey, which is featured on one entire side of the map. The airport is located near the western end of the island. The map shows all touristic attractions, roads, and rural restaurants/pubs. The reverse side is dominated by Guernsey and its historic main town of St. Pete Port, as well as inset maps of Alderney and Sark, while including tiny Herm in the main map.
