 Visit Castle Cornet and join in the guided tour of the grounds (10.30am daily), be sure to witness the firing of the noon day gun! Remember to take your camera as you will see the best views over picturesque St Peter Port and on a clear day towards our sister islands.

12pm

Explore the cobbled streets of St Peter Port and pick up a souvenir; Guernsey fudge, liqueurs and chocolate are favourites! Meander through town to the eccentric Hauteville House, former residence of Victor Hugo who lived on the Island for 15 years during his exile from France. This quirky house is bound to delight!

1.30pm

Have lunch in one of the many St Peter Port restaurants, Guernsey’s seafood is one of the freshest usually being caught in the morning ready to serve for lunch. It’s a must try! For something a little bit special head to the Crown Club in the 5 star OGH Hotel, or watch the boats bob on the harbour at La Nautique, Pier 17 or Mora.  If you’re looking for bistro or pub grub then The Swan has superb food and uses all local produce.

3pm

Learn about Guernsey’s Occupation at the La Vallette Underground Military Museum . Set in a complex of tunnels that were built by German forces as a fuel storage facility for their U-Boats, the museum is near La Vallette bathing pools and features various military and occupation memorabilia.

4pm

From the tunnels, head to Clarence Battery, one of the last fortified remains of Fort George. From here walk along the cliff paths to the secluded Fermain Bay, download Walk 3: Section 1 of our Tasty Walks for audio commentary to guide you along the way.  You will marvel at Guernsey’s beautiful coastline and dramatic cliffs.  At Fermain enjoy a refreshment & bite to eat at the cafe before venturing back to St Peter Port or heading off to your departure by taxi or bus.  (This walk should take approximately 45 minutes each way.)

Alternatively

If the weather is sunny, visit Guernsey’s West Coast in the afternoon by taking bus number 91 to Vazon, Grand Rocques or Pembroke. These beautiful long stretches of sandy beach offer watersports, lots of room for beach games, sunbathing and cafes/kiosks, ideal for all the family.  Make sure to try a deliciously creamy Guernsey Ice Cream!
