Sark guide
What to see

There are many things to see on Sark and perhaps one of the nicest ways to travel around
the island whilst enjoying the breath taking views is to take a horse and carriage ride.
These are available from the top of harbour hill and the carriages are operated by various independent owners.

Alternatively you could hire a bicycle and travel around at your own speed. Cycles are available from Avenue Cycles situated in the Avenue, AtoB Cycles situated opposite the Mermaid Tavern and Sark Cycles situated at the top of harbour Hill.

If a horse and carriage ride or riding a bicycle isn't to your taste then a leisurely walk along some of the numerous cliff paths is a must.

Visit the official Sark Visitor Centre for full details of what to see and do on Sark.
