Guernsey Things to Do

  • Around the Island

    An early January visit and we were pretty happy to spend much of our time on a bus. Route 7 particularly good!Here's some pics.

  • Cliff Walks and Beaches

    Guernsey has some great Beaches on the west coast and the north, Grandes Roques is a favourite of ours but Pembroke, Vazon and Leree and well worth visiting one beach which is different to all the others is Petite Bot, its a little cove and theres a small cafe at the bottomBreathtaking Cliff Path Walks on the south coast, spend a few hours on a...

  • Fish & Chips at Cobo Bay

    The legendary fish & chips at Cobo Bay is a fantastic way to end a long summers day. The sunset is spectacular and Cobo Bay is one of the most scenic beaches on the island. Recommended by locals it is definitely one of the top things to try in Guernsey.

  • LA VALETTE UNDERGROUND MILITARY MUSEUM

    A fascinating place this.... a former German second world war underground complex. It was used for storage of fuel for the German Navy U-Boats. It's not a large complex but it contains 4 tunnels (one unfinished) connected by a larger tunnel; now containing all things military associated with Guersney. Of particular interest are the items related...

  • Victor Hugo's House

    Maybe it's just the literary nerd in me, but I was really excited to see Victor Hugo's house. After his exile from France, he settled in Guernsey, and his house has been turned into a small museum. It's a great chance to learn about Hugo and about French/Guernsey history. Be sure to check out the view from the upstairs windows and walk through the...

  • Walking trails

    Take a walk-but always look around you because you never know when you'll come across a beautiful view.

  • Sausmarez Manor

    This Manor provided a fair few hours of interest, including a tour around the house itself, the sculpture park (see my travelogue and the website for the Monor to see pictures), feeding the ducks and eating home made ice cream. All was inexpensive and the staff were very friendly indeed.

    more
  • Cycling

    The roads around the island are relatively flat, with one hill in St Petersport, and motorists are used to cyclists so even for someone like me who is only moderately fit cycling the 23 miles around the island is quite managable. Some of the nicer beaches are at the bottom of a steep road, but it's well worth the effort to see these lovely...

  • SeaGuernsey2005 Flag Mast

    SeaGuernsey’s latest monument to it naval past is located at the centre of the Weighbridge roundabout. You can't really miss it either as it stands at 32 metres tall. The replica of an 18th-century battleship mast is the centrepiece of SeaGuernsey200. The 100ft-plus structure is an 80%-scale replica of the mizzenmast of HMS Orion, which was...

  • Antiques and Collectables in St Peter...

    If you walk up hill from the Town Church in St Peter Port you'll came across the 'Old Quarter' and a street called Mill Street. The Street hasn't changed much in a hundred or so years! and boosts a collection of antique and collectable shops as well as many different and interesting other shops to browse through. Well worth a wandering up..

    more
  • High Street Shopping St Peter Port

    Guernsey has a wonderful up or down hilly High Street in it capital town of St Peter Port with many UK shops and local ones alike. The Highs street has many jewelery, perfume and clothes shops to browse through, and of course many pubs and cafes to frequent when the other half is spending and trying on new clothes....

  • German Occupation Museum

    The Channel Islands were the only British territory to be occupied by the Germans during WWII and this museum recounts life in Guernsey from 1940-1945. There are 7 rooms filled with equipment, weapons, band instruments, food and other everyday items from the period - all well presented. I chose the liberation poster because it illustrates again the...

    more
  • Guernsey Tapestry

    The citizens of Guernsey's millinium project was a 10-panel "tapestry" illustrating 10 centuries of local history. Technically, it is an embroidery rather than a tapestry, but quite lovely and thorough in its portrayal of local history. Each parish on the island was responsible for one panel and one century and there was very wide participation. We...

  • Candie Gardens

    This is St. Peter Port's best floral attraction and is a lovely haven in the midst of town. The garden originally was the front garden of a 1790's house owned by a local merchant and was later given to the island with the home which now houses the local library. The garden comprises two levels and includes a large lawn overlooking the bay. There...

  • Guernsey Museum

    This is a small but excellent museum. It opened in 1977 and in 1979 was chosen as the British "Museum of the Year." Its main collection relates to the Story of Guernsey and has a nice collection of artifacts and models from the iron age onward. It also has special exhibits and when we were there, they had original charters by many British monarchs...

  • The Little Chapel

    This is a beautiful and incredible work of basically one man. Deodat, a monk associated with Les Vauxbelets college adjacent to the chapel, built it in 1914, modelling it after the grotto in the Church of Lourdes. Actually the one you see is his third effort. The first (in 1914) was criticised so he demolished it. In 1914 he built a second which...

  • Castle Cornet

    This Royal fortress has stood guard over St. Peter Port and its harbor for 8 centuries. It is such a fortification that it withstood 8 or 9 years of siege during the English Civil War. Guernsey's governor at the time (a devout Royalist) retreated to the castle in defiance of the rest of the island which took Parliament's side. The castle sits on an...

  • The Albion House Tavern.

    The Guiness book of records recognises this as `the tavern closest to a church in the UK` There is a gargoyle sticking out from the church pointing at the Albion House Tavern, you can clearly see its shadow on the white wall near the center of the picture.

  • Cornet Castle

    Guernsey has been assulted from all sides over the centuries and this has resulted in castles and fortifications all over the island, the biggest is Cornet Castle adjacent to the docks at St Peter Port.

  • La Petite Greve

    It's the visitors in the summer nearly drive me crazy these days. La Petite Greve used to be a quiet little bay nobody knew of; but now they have discovered it. They lie about on the sand in droves and sprawl on the rocks; and I have to step over their naked bodies to get to my boat.
