Enjoy a guided walking tour that takes you along the cobbled streets of historic St. Peter Port. Stroll along the waterfront as your guide regales you with tales of storms and shipwrecks, smugglers and privateers, and the deadly Black Plague that ravaged the island in the 14th century. Explore the towering Castle Cornet, first fortified between 1206 and 1256. Witness the castle's ancient weapons, ranging from crossbows and catapults to muskets and cannons, and learn about the bloody history of this historic site. Today, Castle Cornet houses the Maritime Museum, The 201 Squadron RAF Museum, and the Royal Guernsey Militia Museum. It also has a restaurant and hosts outdoor theatre performances during the summer months. After touring the castle and its museums, enjoy coffee or tea accompanied by gauche, a fruit bread which is an island specialty.
