Leading steeply up from the harbor, the narrow streets and alleyways of St Peter’s Port lead up town to where you can get a bird’s eye view of the area. The town is filled with old Regency style houses, so it’s quite possible that you might just fall in love with its old world charm. St Peter’s Port has an abundance of shopping opportunities, great museums, historic sites and recreational facilities. Whatever you decide to do, don’t miss out on seeing the 12th century Town Church and Hauteville House, which are the two top sites to visit.
Located on Guernsey’s coastline you’ll find several historic sites like Martello Towers and the ruins of Vale Castle, an early Norman Vale Church and a passage grave to name but just a few sites. Head to the south coast if you’re a nature junkie, and see the cliffs and caves like the Creux Mahie cave and Corbière Point. Rocquiane Bay is located on Guernsey’s west coast and then there’s also the small islet of Lihou that’s linked with the main island by a causeway.
