Guernsey Island profile

Guernsey is only 30 miles west of France and 75 miles from England, its proximity to France being reflected in its interesting and eclectic culture. It is the second largest of the Channel Islands, the largest being Jersey. It lies close to the islands of Herm, Alderney and Sark.

It has some of the most stunning scenery and beautiful beaches in the Channel islands, safe for swimming. As far back as the 11th century the island was part of the Duchy of Normandy.

There are many Neolithic burial chambers and earthworks here. Guernsey is well known for its agricultural produce, particularly tomatoes, potatoes and flowers.

St Peter Port

The island’s capital, St. Peter Port is a bustling harbour town. Its rich architecture reflects the wealth produced over the ages from ship builders, merchants and privateers.

Regency and Georgian styles have been enriched by the immigration of French émigrés, including Victor Hugo, to produce an architectural mix of tiered gardens, terraced houses, narrow alleyways and time-worn steps.

Guernsey was bulwark in the European WWII Atlantic Wall, its legacy evident in the many fortifications that remain. There are also some interesting artefacts to be found in the museums, such as the one situated at Castle Cornet.
