Alderney Guide

The island of Alderney is one of the Channel Islands and forms part of the Bailwick of Guernsey which is a British Crown dependency. The island is roughly 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide and is located around 10 miles to the west of La Hague on the Cotentin Peninsular in Normandy, France, and 20 miles to the north east of Guernsey and 60 miles from the coast of the United Kingdom.

The main town is sometimes called 'St Ann's' and is a popular place with tourists. The town has an interesting church and is characterised by a cobbled high street. Visitors to the town will find all of the expected amenities along with a number of hotels, bars and restaurants.

Dielette Guide

The town and port of Dialette is located in Normandy, in the north west of France and lies on the English Channel coast. It is situated around 315 km from Paris and 75 km from Saint-Lo, and is the main departure port for ferry services to Guernsey and Alderney, two of the Channel Islands. The town, which sits amidst agricultural country and is the land of Calvados, Camembert and cider, has a small port which over recent years has been developed and is now a thriving marina.

The region of Upper Normandy (Haute-Normandie) is made up of the French departments of Seine-Maritime and Eure and Lower Normandy (Basse-Normandie) is made up of the departments of Orne, Calvados and Manche. The earlier province of Normandy was made up of the present day Upper and Lower Normandy, along with small areas that are now part of the departments of Eure-et-Loir, Mayenne and Sarth. The name is derived from the settlement of the area by Vikings ("Northmen") in the 9th century, and later confirmed by Treaty in the 10th century. Following the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Normandy and England were linked by Norman and Frankish rulers for around 150 years.

During the summer a high-speed passenger ferry is operated from Dialette to Alderney and Guernsey by Manche Iles Express.
