Located on the Channel Island of Guernsey, St. Peter Port combines the best of French and English culture into an alluring seaside spirit found nowhere else in the world. The city is threaded by twisting cobbled stone streets, with cafes and restaurants spilling out of white-washed buildings as they roll down to the sea. The shorefront is dominated by the tidy Victoria Marina and the city’s natural harbour, while the promenade itself is lined with eateries, shops and accommodation. The warmer months see the city draped in reams of blossoming flowers, with telephone wires splendidly bedecked in the colourful ripple of festival bunting.
The city’s age is another reason to visit, with St. Peter Port tracing its origins back to the Neolithic. Both the Vikings and the Normans made their mark on the city, with all the various cultures influencing the unique character of the St. Peter Port we know today.
