What to do in Alderney

St Anne Alderney is a charming village with a cobbled main street, pastel-coloured Georgian houses and colourful bunting criss-crossing the streets. It is the island’s main settlement. Full of quirky independent shops, bars that are always full of locals, an old-school cinema and the Channel Islands’ biggest church – it also has the best Indian restaurant of the archipelago, Nellie Grays (in fact its on our list of top 10 Indian restaurants in the UK).

St Anne is also home to the Alderney Society Museum which tells the story of Alderney, from original Neolithic settlements through to the island’s role in Roman trade, centuries of enmity with France and the resulting Victorian fort-building. It tells stories of the traumatic World War II period, when the vast majority of islanders were evacuated, and gives more information about the lives of the German invaders.
