The Castle has guarded the harbour for 800 years. You can explore the battlements and enjoy breath-taking views towards the other islands. Five Museums, four period gardens, the refectory and our shop are all here to discover.
Just a short walk from the town centre, the Castle not only offers a fascinating insight into hundreds of years of island history - but spectacular panoramic views back towards St Peter Port and out across our sister islands.
