Ancient castle sticking out to sea. Four museums, gift shop, cafe plus views over the nearby islands. Noon day gun firing is impressive. A short drama performance usually follows. Free tour at 10.30. What's not to like? Looking forward to the reopening once this virus is beaten.…

Fun to explore this Castle. I came on a cruise ship and we only had 8 hours in port. First I took a bus to the Little Chapel and then came to Castle Cornet. There was a free 45-minute tour included in the entrance fee but it was a little disappointing because our guide Nev's voice was not loud enough, and explanations were rushed or not entirely clear. It sounded like he gave the same tour hundreds of times and was losing the 'fresh and enthusiastic' feeling. The free site map leaflet was very helpful as were the descriptive signs all around the area. After the tour was the noon gun salute, which was fun! Then there was a little cultural performance entitled "Narrow Escape", excellently done with help from audience members - quite fun and educational. The several museums on site were really well done with informative and interactive displays.…

Took my mum and sis there couple summers ago... absolutely loved it... been living in Guernsey for few years but never had chance to do full tour.. but when I did absolutely loved it .. room for kids to play dress up and views what you get is breath taking.

A large fortification complex on the harbour, Castle Cornet is a pleasant level walk from the port; no hills to negotiate. The castle houses a couple different museums, gardens, and a cafe. Watching the gun fire at noon is very popular with visitors.

Thank you for the review. Just worth noting for anyone reading this. It is a flat walk to the castle along the pier but once you get there, there are a lot of steps within as the castle is on 3 levels. Thanks again.

A ruin on the end of Guernsey pier. There were lots of exhibitions and museums within. Bit miserable on a rainy day.
