Overview Of The Port Of St Peter Port

About St Peter Port
St Peter Port is the principle town on the island of Guernsey. It is the second largest of the several Channel Islands located 30 miles west of France's coast of Normandy and 75 miles south of Weymouth on the south coast of England.

St Peter Port is walkable although some attractions are up a steep hill, so visitors may prefer to take a taxi/bus.

Places of interest include Castle Cornet, Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery Bailiwick of Guernsey Millennium Tapestry.

The attractive nearby island of Herm is a 20 minute boat ride from St Peter Port. With no cars, the island is a hiker's delight with many coastal and inland paths. The beaches are lovely, although the water may well be too cold for swimming.

During the circular Guernsey island drive by local bus, there are a number of beach stops, perfect for coastal walks and local sightseeing via the circular Guernsey island bus. Vazon Bay has the Fort Hommet Gun Casement, built by the Nazis during the WWII occupation and Fort Grey, at L'Eree is a round Martello Tower located on a rocky islet as part of the island's coastal defence. It is now a shipwreck museum.

Fresh local fish and shellfish are featured on nearly all menus, especially Dover sole or fillet of plaice and king prawns, lobsters, crayfish, crabs and mussels.
Cruise Terminal
Small cruise ships may dock along one of St Peter Port's stone piers, but most ships are required to anchor, and tender passengers to the landing at St Julian's Pier.

A visitor information stand may be open on the pier and a small cafe to the left serves drinks, food and snacks. Taxis are available at the pier.

St Peter Port's town centre, stretching along the Esplanade, is a 5 minute walk away.
