In the final episode, Clunes explores islands off the south coast of the British mainland. First stop is Guernsey in the Channel Islands — a tax haven popular with wealthy settlers. Then we follow our intrepid guide to Sark, another nearby island. With just 600 inhabitants, it is in a timewarp; at the time of filming it's the last feudal state in Europe and the only motorized vehicles allowed are tractors. Next is St. Michael's Mount, a tiny island comprising a castle and a few houses, just off the Cornish coast. The stage of the journey through islands of the south includes a visit to the Scilly Isles, off Land's End in Cornwall.
