The picturesque capital of Guernsey, and the main port of the Channel Islands, St. Peter Port, is a bustling, historic town where Georgian and Regency architecture has been refined by French émigrés.

The result of these influences is a charming mix of styles, with tumbling terraces and tiered gardens, stylish boutiques and chic cafés that are an absolute joy to explore.[ReadMoreMob] Of course, many visitors tour the town on the hunt for a bargain in the low-tax stores.

The author of Les Misérables, Victor Hugo, was exiled in Guernsey, living in Hauteville House for 15 years. Now known as Victor Hugo House, it is a museum owned and operated by the Paris city government. Castle Cornet, the ancient harbour fortress, sits atop a rock outcrop reached along a bridge and breakwater, and houses several museums.
