Guernsey tourist attractions

Guernsey has a wide and varied heritage with many historical castles and fortifications as well as its own Guernésiais language and traditions (don’t worry, English is now spoken!). Writers and artists have been attracted and inspired by the island’s spectacular scenery with author Victor Hugo residing in exile in Guernsey for a number of years and Renoir depicting coastal scenes in some of his paintings. The island is also renown for its beautiful flowers, many of which are exported to the rest of the UK, Ireland and Europe. With this in mind, it is no wonder there are a huge number of Guernsey tourist attractions available to visit whilst on holiday.
