Public Holidays

Public holidays in Guernsey 2021-2025

As the second largest British Channel Island, it is hardly surprising that the vast majority of holidays coincide with the United Kingdom. Only Liberation Day on 9 March is not celebrated in the motherland, but only in Guernsey and the neighbouring island of Jersey.
