Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach ST PETER PORT

ST PETER PORT

The picturesque capital of Guernsey proves that you don’t have to go to the Caribbean for white sand and crystal clear water. St Peter Port is both wonderfully pretty and atmospheric, full of blooming floral displays, tiny stone churches and brightly painted boats. What’s more, summers are mostly sunny and comfortable, making the weather something you don’t have to worry about. As the capital of Guernsey, St. Peter Port is where the “action” is found.

This mainly takes the form of strolling the cobbled streets, stopping every now and then to admire, and perhaps photograph, the stunning views. Once French (original name: St. Pierre Port), the town is at least 800 years old, with the stone castle and maze like streets to prove it. Once you have made you way up to the ancient castle, make like a local and find refreshment with a cream tea, washed down perhaps with a glass of cider! If the weather is on your side, then surely there is no more invigorating pastime than hiking up to the spectacular Guernsey cliffs, taking in stunning views of wildflowers, sandy beaches and English Channel views. For those who want to spread their wings a little further, the tiny island of Herm is just a 20-minute boat ride away, and homes no cars, one pub, a few cows, some puffins and about 50 people. Don’t be fooled by St Peter Port’s nostalgic exterior. The seaside town has made a name for itself as a foodie heaven, with everything from beach huts to Michelin starred restaurants offering sumptuous, locally sourced fare.

Exkursionen in ST PETER PORT

Castle Cornet and Town Walk

Discover the charm and history of St. Peter Port, including the iconic, ancient Castle Cornet on this half-day tour. Take a guided walking tour of the harbor with your knowledgeable local guide, and then enjoy the chance to see the legendary, 800-year-old Castle Cornet and its many museums housed within.


Join your local guide on a tour to the center of the town of St Peter Port, which has a fascinating history. A busy port since Roman times, the deep, safe anchorage and relative remoteness from France has made the town the Channel Islands' premier port. It is a picturesque town with cobbled high streets and narrow alleys and regency buildings.


From the harbor, with its forest of masts and bustling Fish Quay, see Castle Cornet, originally built on an island and now reachable by a raised walkway built in the 19th Century. Built on the site of Neolithic and Bronze Age settlements, the castle has been built, partially destroyed and rebuilt many times with Medieval, Tudor and World War 2 remains.


The castle dates from the 13th century when it began as a fortification against the French after the island decided to side with England following the loss of Normandy. It has been used as a garrison, arsenal and prison. Castle Cornet guards the entrance to Guernsey's Harbor and offered defense of the seaway between the islands of Herm, Jethou and Guernsey and towards Sark over many centuries.


See and hear the key highlights of the Castle with your guide before spending some time in the "Story of Castle Cornet" exhibition, or exploring the castle and perhaps some of their four small gardens within the castle walls - including the apothecary's garden, kitchen garden and ornamental gardens. The Castle contains several interesting museums including the Maritime Museum, the Story of Castle Cornet Museum, the 201 Squadron RAF (Guernsey's Own) Museum and the Militia Museum.


Following the exploration of Castle Cornet, you may choose to return with your guide or make your way back on your own time to St. Peter Port harbour and the ship.

Castle Cornet has seen many iterations over the centuries, as it has been built, destroyed and rebuilt from Medieval to Tudor to World War 2 and has remnants of these and other periods. The original castle was begun in the 13th century as an English fortification against the French following the loss of Normandy. Over the centuries the castle has served as a prison, a garrison and even an arsenal.
