St Peter Port

Your First Port of Call

Tiny in size but big on charm, St Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey.

Known colloquially by Islanders as ‘town’ and home to around 18,000, St Peter Port is a colourful display of flowers and bunting. There’s a distinct Mediterranean feel and an abundance of charm, with steep cobbled streets snaking their way up the hillside, all set against the spectacular backdrop of the 800 year-old Castle Cornet.
