Welcome to Alderney, the tiny Channel Island that boasts nearly 2,000 hours of sunshine a year - one for each of its 2,000 inhabitants. Just 3 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, this island is home to a blissfully mild climate and dramatic coastline, making it the perfect spot for weekend breaks, family holidays and business trips alike.

Fly direct from Southampton Airport in 45 minutes with Aurigny Airlines. With a history that dates back to Roman times, there’s always time to kick back, relax and experience island life, the Alderney way.

From Duty-Free shopping in the main town, to the bells of St. Anne’s, Napoleonic ruins, WWII tunnels, lively pubs and 50 miles of coastline.

It might be tiny, but there’s a whole world to explore.

Getting There

Aurigny Airlines operate up to 5 flights a day direct from Southampton Airport. These prop planes can be noisy, so if you’re travelling with the kids you might want to pack some ear plugs for the short hop. And because Alderney is rabies-free, you can take your furry friends along, too. Dogs – and cats - fly in the cabin with you but please contact the airline for more details before you go.

Transport from Alderney Airport

Once you’re on the ground, ABC Taxis, Island Taxis or Central Taxis, can take you to where you need to be. Car hire is from Braye Car Hire.
