A unique and interesting place to visit, it is hard to believe that Guernsey never had a lighthouse and that the shipping channels bought shipping very close to the formidable rocks off the west coast. There is an interesting video on the Orion oil rig...More

Attractive fortification right on the beach at Rocquaine bay, with the usual stuff to see if you’re interested in that kind of thing! Nice enough, £5 entry.

Fort Grey is an unusual and interesting small building comprising a Martello Tower adapted with a later fortification. Inside, there is a museum of artefacts from local shipwrecks. There isn't a lot to see but it's worth a visit for anyone in the area.

Very small and not a lot to see visually, lots of reading so if you don't like reading it's not the place for you.

Situated in a small fort across a short causeway. Very informative showing numerous shipwrecks. Museum is on two floors. Great views along the coast and to the lighthouse.

My test of a good museum is that it can really take you back in time to when the artefacts it exhibits were serving their original purpose. In that way we get an illustration of how people in former times lived their lives. On that...More
