Channel Islands, United Kingdom

Cruises to Guernsey

The second largest of the Channel Islands, Guernsey's sea cliffs and windswept grasslands are home to a history as dramatic as its landscape, from being a pirate haven during the Middle Ages to becoming occupied by German troops during WWII. Today, the island's capital St. Peters Port is considered one of Europe's most scenic port cities with its cobblestone streets, lush gardens, museums and boutique shopping. From the port, you can tour 800-year-old Castle Cornet, hike along cliffs offering amazing vistas or visit the museum at Hauteville House - home of famed French writer Victor Hugo.
