St Peter Port

With its cobbled streets and picturesque seafront marina, it is easy to see why St Peter Port is considered one of Europe's prettiest harbour towns. Guernsey's capital has been a busy port since Roman times.

Castle Cornet has stood guard over the town for 800 years. Once cut off by the tide, it now provides a spectacular backdrop to the town as well as staging theatre productions and musical events. St Peter Port's centrepiece is its beautiful church, which is believed to be the closest church to a pub in the British Isles. If you want to learn more about the island's history, head to the Guernsey Tapestry at the Gallery in St James Concert Hall, wander through the beautiful Candie Gardens or explore Hauteville House, home to French writer Victor Hugo. If you would rather just take it easy, explore the boutique shopping, then sit back and relax with a coffee or bite to eat and watch the world go by.
