Example Walks:

Ready or Not

Explore the Hommet Headland through the eyes of Captain Basset, who was overseeing the building of the fortifications of the headland at the end of the 18th Century. Reflect on and look back at the reinforcement of the area by Paul Piniel - a conscripted soldier in the German Army - making it an impregnable strong point.

Fourth Baron’s Legacy (James St Vincent de Saumarez Estate Walk)

Take a guided walk around James St Vincent de Saumarez’ estate, visiting the many diverse areas. Find out about the granite industry, a church that was built because of a young girl’s vision, and also the leisure activities the baron’s children enjoyed.

Victoria's Legacy

Step back 115 years to the height of the Victorian era. A Victorian gentleman will take you to meet the Guernsey people who moulded the future of the town and island. Hear stories that will make your hair curl and you may never see St Peter Port in the same way again.
