Get the year off to a bang with a visit to Guernsey this January, where there are a whole host of attractions to enjoy at the start of 2014. Despite the briskness of the weather, there is plenty of fun to be had, even for those who don't want to brave the cold.

Take a look at the options below before booking yourself into The Duke of Richmond where you can be sure of enjoying first-rate service, fantastic cuisine and a number of optional extras including a bottle of Champagne or a traditional afternoon tea for two as part of the Get More From Your Stay offer.

Liberation Day

This spectacular celebration sees the island transformed into a veritable fairground of fun and frolics as the locals commemorate the day Guernsey was liberated from the German occupation during the Second World War. Expect major events in St Peter Port all day on January 9th.

Guernsey Sinfonia Orchestra and Chorus

Once a year, choral groups from across Guernsey join together for a 24-hour workshop before performing their efforts in a huge concert that has become renowned across the island. Because of the nature of the show, there is little clue as to what the audience should expect before heading into the St James Concert Hall at 8pm on January 11th. But you can be sure it'll be as inventive and innovative as it is possible to get after 24 hours of singing.

Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition

This well-established and much-loved exhibition will be returning to Guernsey as part of its UK tour towards the end of January. The outstanding photographs are utterly enrapturing and the skill with which they have been shot is mindblowing. What's more, the sheer variety of creatures on display means that you're sure to find your favourite somewhere. It's all happening at the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery from January 25th.
