The Channel Islands

The Channel Islands (Îles Anglo-Normandes) are a group of British dependent islands in the English Channel (or the Manche), off the French coast of Normandy. They have a total population of about 160,000. The main islands are Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark. But there are other small islands as well.

By Channel islanders - when speaking French - the islands are called the 'Îles de la Manche'. In France, however, they are known as the 'Îles anglo-normandes' (Anglo-Norman isles).

Although the islands are very British in many respects, as the photographs above show, there are certain differences!
