St Peter Port

The Island’s charming capital

With its cobbled streets, picturesque marina and historic gardens, 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 and today its gentle bustle spills out onto the vibrant squares from informal cafes and quaint boutiques.

Castle Cornet

Standing guard, Castle Cornet provides a spectacular backdrop to the town and is the perfect spot to admire the marina boats bob to the ebb of the royal blue sea. Once cut off by the tide, the 800 year old castle consists of five museums and four period gardens.
