Guernsey combines a rich and fascinating history with a vibrant, modern culture. Wander along the cliff paths and observe the breathtaking coastline and beautiful beaches that inspired Renoir, and explore the unique 19th century home of French writer Victor Hugo. Treat yourself to a cream tea and mooch around the cobbled streets of Guernsey’s capital – St Peter Port. The port is full of pleasant surprises with its narrow lanes and steep steps leading to spectacular views of the picturesque harbour, which has been a busy port since Roman times. Several of Guernsey’s most fascinating museums are located here, including historically important Castle Cornet, and many of the island’s fine restaurants are close at hand. It is easy to see why St Peter Port is considered one of the prettiest harbour towns in Europe.
