Climb the stairs to the top of the highest tower in St Peter Port, Victoria Tower.

Offering panoramic views across the west, north and east coasts of Guernsey, this is the perfect place to capture that perfect holiday photograph.

Victor Hugo and his long term mistress and secretary, Juliette Drouet would meet secretly in Victoria Tower. It is said that the lovers carved their initials somewhere in its walls - though no one has ever found them - and that Hugo wrote a few verses of La Fin de Satan, while at the top of the tower.
