Guernsey is a Crown possession in the English Channel. St Peter Port, the island's capital. The name comes from Guernsey green ( s ) ey, or the green island. Along with Jersey constitutes Guernsey Channel Islands archipelago, located in St. Malo Bay off Brittany.

Visiting Guernsey is like visiting an open museum. The island is an exhibition that is open every day. Guernsey 's heritage is not trapped behind glass. Guernsey may only be 25 square miles, it is home to some of Europe's most significant cultural monuments.

St Peter Port with its cobbled streets and picturesque waterfront marina, the city is one of Europe's most beautiful ports. Guernsey 's capital has been a busy port since Roman times .

The main attraction in the capital St Peter Port is the beautiful church, believed to be the closest church to a pub in the British Isles. Castle Cornet has stood guard over the city for 800 years.

High Street retains much of its charm with small boutiques and gift shops in the fight for space with the larger brand stores. Guernsey has a lot to offer if you want to treat yourself to a new wardrobe.

Food festivals and farmer's markets are a great way to experience the self-sufficient islanders are. Guernsey has, without doubt, the best milk in the world, and with the addition of independent cheese producers, it has never been more choice when it comes to local produce. A growing number of local smallholders expanding market, where local pork, veal, beef and lamb Guernsey is available. Historically, Guernsey known to export its cider and there is now a resurgence of the industry with Rocquette cider. Locally brewed beer is also widely available in the island's bars and restaurants. Guernsey 's vibrant food culture is a real taste of what the island has to offer.
