Guernsey (St. Peter Port), England
The British isle of Guernsey, the second largest of the Channel Islands, lying 30 miles (48 km) west of France's Normandy coast, offers the visitor a mild climate, breathtaking scenery and a peaceful, unspoiled ambience. Between the wide, sandy beaches to the north and the rocky cliffs in the south are wooded valleys, marshland and winding country lanes. Guernsey enjoys nearly 2,000 hours of sunshine annually, making it one of the sunniest places in the British Isles.
Behold the skill and craftsmanship handed down through the ages as these goldsmiths and silversmiths practice their craft in this small manufacturing complex.
A time capsule of Guernsey's changing fortunes over the last seven centuries can be observed, with the present manor, containing a wealth of fascinating items, including the log of a round-the-world voyage in the mid-18th century which culminated in the capture of the world's richest treasure ship.
Set in the quiet countryside and along a tree-lined path, a church in miniature scale resides, measuring a mere 19 by 15 feet in size.
