This St Peter Port walk will lead you around some of Victor Hugo's favourite St Peter Port haunts. The Les Miserables author spent 15 years in exile in Guernsey from 1855 and the island provided the inspiration for many of his well-known works. 2014 commemorates the centenary of the unveiling of the Victor Hugo statue, situated in the picturesque gardens of Candie Museum. Collect the key from here for nearby Victoria Tower, where the French poet would meet his lover, Juliette Drouet, in secret. The tower offers spectacular panoramic views across the town and to neighbouring islands.
Promenade along the seafront towards the capital's church, which is referenced in Les Travailleurs de la Mer and on to the curiosity and antique shops of the Old Quarter. Take a break, or a dip, in Havelet Bay. Castle Cornet provides the stunning backdrop for this town beach that was a favourite of Victor Hugo's. This walk ends at his beloved home, Hauteville House, which is now an immaculately-preserved museum which offers a fascinating insight into his life in Guernsey.
