There is much to see in Guernsey.
Stroll around the island's capital St Peter Port, which retains much of the character of a traditional fishing village. See the 12th-century church and the 17th-century oldest house, now a National Trust shop, in Cornet Street.
If you want to learn more about the island's history, head to the Guernsey Tapestry at the Gallery
in St James Concert Hall, wander through the beautiful Candie Gardens or explore Hauteville House, home to French writer Victor Hugo. If you would rather just take it easy, explore the boutiques shopping, then sit back and relax with a coffee or bite to eat and watch the world go by. St Peter Port is a rare town in that it has retained its identity.
The High Street has retained much of its charm with small boutiques and gift shops jostling for space alongside larger branded stores. St Peter Port may be small but it is perfectly formed
- shopping in Guernsey offers plenty of choice if you want to treat yourself to a new wardrobe of clothes. The many of family-run businesses mean that no two shops are the same.The town really excels in the variety it offers
, especially if you venture towards the outskirts. The Old Quarter is an eclectic mix of antique shops and locally made craft shops where you can find a lovingly made memento of your holiday or a treasured gift.
