A small and beautiful island in the English Channel that boasts a laid-back, historical, and picturesque destination, Guernsey has humbly attracted tourists whether from the neighboring European countries or even outside the continent. Witness the Island’s beauty from the second world war’s remnants to unique architectures and jaw-dropping landscapes. And their dairy products are indeed not to miss out when exploring Guernsey.

Top Destinations in Guernsey

If you are someone who wants thrill and relaxation on a small island, then Guernsey is for you. You can take a stroll at shops at cute boutiques in the capital, take down memory lane and discover its rich culture, or get more adventurous by doing water sports. The Island will surely spoil you with everything a traveler needs.

St. Peter Port

St Peter Port is where you probably start and end your trip in Guernsey. If you are coming from another territory in Europe and you ferried your way to Guernsey, you will dock at St. Peter Port. This is the capital of Guernsey, where winding cobbled streets and architecture can be experienced. It is often called one of the prettiest harbors globally, so it is good to start your trip with beautiful scenery.

With its narrow roads, you might as well find a parking space for your car while you explore the harbor. It is best to stay here during the summer months, from late June to mid-September. This time of the year will give you a soft and pleasant temperature and limited rainfall.

Driving Directions:

  • It takes about thirteen minutes From Guernsey Airport to reach St. Peter Port.
  • Head south toward Rue des Landes.
  • Take Forest Rd, Route des Cornus and Ruette Braye to Glategny Esplanade.

Guernsey allows tourists from countries under the European Union to drive with only the local driver’s license. Other permits, such as International Driving Permits, are not requirements to drive legally on the Island of Guernsey. However, it is still best to secure an IDP, especially if your driver’s license is not printed in the English language.

Getting an IDP is just a few clicks and taps away on your gadgets. It can be done online. For the application of an International Driving Permit for your Guernsey trip, a website from the International Drivers Association will be available at your fingertips. You just need to encode the necessary information to get started.

High Street & Le Pollet

Just a few meters away from the harbor, stroll along its narrow streets and shop at charming boutiques. High Streets and Le Pollet are filled with local goods and larger branded stores that you can shop from. The High Street has maintained much of its charm with small boutiques and gift shops.


  • While you are in St. Peter Port, you mostly have to walk to check out places at the town center. High Streets and Let Pollet is just an eight-minute walk from the port.
  • Head southwest on Glategny Esplanade toward Bosq Ln.
  • At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit.
  • Turn right onto N Pier Steps.
  • Take the stairs.
  • Turn right onto High St.

Adjacent to the High Street and Let Pollet is the Market Square. This was built in the 1770s, and in 1818, the French Halles and surrounding area were expanded to what it is today. You will see different exhibitions such as photo exhibits, musical ensembles during the summer, and the Guernsey Literary Festival. And while you are in St. Peter Port, enjoy the island’s view in the Bailiwick through the Candie Gardens, which is just a walk away from the harbor.

Hauteville House

This house was previously owned by French poet, novelist, and dramatist Victor Hugo. Like the “Les Miserables,” many of Hugo’s masterpieces were written inside this house, which he purchased during his exile from France in 1851-1870. The house represents Victor Hugo as the interiors are made and designed by him. The layouts and decor are decorated with layers of tapestries, silks, and mirrors, combining Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles.

In March 1927, Hugo’s descendants donated the house to the City of Paris. Hauteville now houses the honorary consul to the French Embassy in London and a Victor Hugo Museum open to the public. There is also a garden inside the property overlooking the view of the St. Peter Port. The museum is free for visitors up to 18 years old and a £10 fee for adults.

Driving Directions:

  • It will only take you about four minutes to reach Victor Hugo’s house.
  • Head southwest on Glategny Esplanade toward Bosq Ln.
  • At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit.
  • Turn right onto Fountain St.
  • Fountain St turns slightly left and becomes The Bordage.
  • Turn left onto Tower Hill.
  • Sharp right onto Hauteville.
  • Destination will be on the left.

But that does not mean that it is valid to present to authorities on the Island during checkpoints. IDA will ship the physical copy of your International Driving Permit for your Guernsey trip via the address you encoded on the application form.

Castle Cornet

The castle has served as a defense of the Island for 800 years now. This harbor fortress was isolated upon rocky islets until a breakwater, and a bridge was built in the 19th century. Now it hosts five museums that are open to the public.

A guided tour starts typically at 10:30 AM. Don’t miss the noon-day gun from soldiers wearing 19th-century costumes. And during the summer, from June to August, the Guernsey History in Action Company conducts re-enactments from Guernsey’s past. The performances from the Regency Dancers can sometimes be seen in the Hatton Gallery.

Driving Directions:

  • Castle Cornet is just a five-minute drive from St. Peter Port.
  • Head southwest on Glategny Esplanade toward Bosq Ln.
  • At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit.

Your IDP’s shipment takes about 7-15 days if you live in the United States and 30 days outside the US.

The Little Chapel

From afar, it looks like this tiny chapel is painted in rainbow colors, but this is made of seashells, pebbles, and broken china. This destination is one of the most famous Guernsey ones, one of the world’s smallest chapels. Curious tourists visit here to see how tiny of a chapel is The Little Chapel. Brother Déodat built the Little Chapel in 1904 with a length of nine feet and width of 4.5 feet.

It was then demolished overnight by Brother Déodat and built a new one. The second incarnation lasted for nine years and was destroyed again after a Bishop from Portsmouth could not fit through the door during his visit in 1923. Today it was adjusted to a wider opening. The chapel is open to the public daily starting from 9 AM to 6 PM and will revert to earlier closure during the winter at 4 PM.

Driving Directions:

  • The Little Chapel is just about five kilometers away from St Peter Port or just a 12-minute drive.
  • Take The Bordage and La Charroterie to Prince Albert's Rd in Saint Peter Port.
  • Continue on Prince Albert's Rd. Take Mt Row, Le Vauquiedor, Route de Saint-Andrew, and Route de St. Andrew's to Little Chapel in St Andrew.

German Military Underground Hospital

The Island also offers a rich history, and one of the most visited historical attractions is the German Military Underground Hospital. This is the largest remaining structure of World War 2 during the German Occupation. The hospital was built by slave workers in 1944 using hewn out of solid rocks.

The tunnel complex is about 7,000 square meters wide, built to accommodate many casualties when the D-Day landings caused the German defeat. This destination varies its opening hours. They are open from 2 PM to 4 PM during April, same as May until October, with additional opening slots in the morning from 10 AM to 12 PM. Limited openings are offered from November to March and fully closed from December to February.

Fort Grey Shipwreck Museum

Fondly known as “cup and saucer,” Fort Grey is a small defensive fort built across the British Empire during the 19th century. Fort Grey is located on the rocky west coast of Guernsey near the Hanois reef. This means that the fort is also a witness to some historic shipwrecks over the years.

Today, Fort Grey serves as a shipwreck museum, housing artifacts salvaged from the wrecks. There are also information panels that tell the stories surrounding the disasters from HMS Sprightly in 1777 to the Vermontborg in 2003. The museum opens every day from 10 AM to 4:30 PM.

This is one of the most beautiful, exciting, and varied places in Guernsey. It offers house tours, Ghost Tours, and mini trains for children through some woods alongside the sculpture park. Some parts of the manor date way back to the early 13th or late 12th centuries. The finest example of Queen Anne Colonial Architecture is visible at the front part of the house.

The house tour lasts for about forty minutes. Inhabitants of the house include diplomats, adventurers, admirals, generals, inventors, politicians, to name a few. Ghost tours are usually assisted by the lord of the manor himself. Be ready to learn about the house’s history and the island, including different ghosts and hauntings.

Considered as a hub for sports enthusiasts, Vazon Bay is best experienced by surfing, kitesurfing, bodysurfing, and other water sports offered on the Island. You can get watersports training from surfing schools here. If you are not the adventurer type, you can always get some snacks and other local cuisines from nearby restaurants while appreciating the waves’ beauty from afar.

Your international driver’s license in Guernsey has a unique number that will be crucial if you lost your IDP while driving Guernsey. After you lose your international driver’s license in Guernsey, the one you planned to download, which is the digital copy of your IDP, is not valid during police checks. That is why, in case of lost IDP, you need to process for a replacement immediately.

Remember that once an application is made for your international driver’s license in Guernsey, you can download the digital copy of it that was sent to your email, but only use it for reference. This means that you need to wait for the physical copy to arrive in Guernsey to continue driving on the island. To avoid these circumstances, safely keep all our travel documents while on the road or visiting tourist destinations.

Most Important Driving Rules

If you are driving on foreign territories, it is best that you can focus on driving and nothing else aside from familiarization with road signs. Especially in Guernsey, where there are mostly narrow roads and animals suddenly crossing the street, it is best to pay attention. You do not want to jeopardize your Guernsey trip by committing traffic violations. After all, you are in Guernsey to enjoy and take a breather from what keeps you busy all year round.

Basic Driving Rules

You are expected to drive on the left-hand side of the road. This is one road rule that you must not forget. Guernsey roads are narrow; you will have a hard time navigating to the other side of the road if you mistakenly took the right-hand side of the road. You can even cause accidents with this mistake.

Always Bring Your IDP With You

An international driver’s license is necessary for foreigners to avoid any trouble while driving on foreign roads. It may not be required for some countries, but it pays to secure one if you need to drive somewhere else after your trip to Guernsey. Applying for an international driver’s license for Guernsey requires your telephone number, name, and address to get started.

It is essential to include your licence application form for an international driver’s license in Guernsey, the zip code of your shipping address for an efficient and quick shipment of the physical copy. Providing the exact details on your identity verification form will ensure the deliveries will be done within the timeframe given. For an IDP applied for a US citizen, shipment only takes about 7-15 days, while 30 days internationally.

Don’t Forget to Carry Required Documents

Apart from your IDP, your driver’s license must be with you at all times while you are driving in Guernsey. Other documents you need to include your passport, visa, and additional documents for proper identification. The police might question you along your trip.

Never Drive Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs

Guernsey implements an alcohol limit of not more than 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. There are no on the spot fines in Guernsey but be careful since if the police suspect you, they will not hesitate to stop you. Driving under the influence will not only cause you fines, but you will end up being involved in accidents if you are not responsible enough.

Obey The Speed Limit of the Road

One of the main reasons for accidents in Guernsey is overspeeding. So you must take note of speed limits printed on traffic signs. All motor vehicles are expected to drive at a maximum speed of 35 miles per hour. In case you are headed to St Peter Port, the Bridge, and local centers, your car speed must be 20 miles per hour. In seven parishes known as the “Ruette Tranquille,” your rate is 15 miles per hour. There’s a likelihood of encountering pedestrians, cyclists, and horse riders in these areas.

Wearing A Seatbelt is A Must

The driver and passengers of a vehicle must, at all times, wear a seatbelt. For children below six years old, they must be in a car seat. If there are no car seats available, the child must be accompanied by an adult who assumes the child’s responsibility and safety. Never violate this rule, as this could lead you to penalties if caught.

Using Handheld Phones While Driving Is Not Allowed

Using your phone while driving will divide your attention from the road. Animals crossing the streets are frequent in rural areas, so you have to focus on driving. You can use the hand- free system if you wish to answer calls.

Do Not Drive With an Expired License

It is essential to check the validity of your documents before going on an international trip. If you plan to drive in Guernsey, make sure you have a valid driver’s license and not an expired one. You will not be able to rent a car and drive on Guernsey roads if that is the case. You can’t even renew your local driver’s license in Guernsey.

For an expired IDP, you can renew it even if you are in Guernsey. This is because you can do it online and have your IDP shipped to Guernsey. Include in your renewal of your international driver’s license in Guernsey the telephone number you will be using on the Island, so you can be reached by the time it arrives. Also, update some details of your international driver’s license in Guernsey, like the zip code of your address on the island, for a hassle-free shipment.

For the renewal of your international driver’s license after Guernsey, an email address can also come in handy if you can’t use your contact number on the island. Planning for an international trip can be tricky, especially if it is your first time. But the best way for a worthwhile international trip is to list and prepare all the necessary documents ahead of time. From accommodations to rental packages and tour packages, there are so many things to consider.
