Saint Peter Port is way smaller and cuter than its big sister Saint Helier on Jersey. But while Saint Helier is a real town with working people, Saint Peter Port seems more like a holiday town with a cluster of fine dining for tourists. The pretty harbour with its guarding castle Cornet, is the main entrance to Guernsey for many visitors (though there is an airport too). Steep cobblestoned streets lead up the hill from the marina through the historical neighbourhood, which once was home to the French writer Victor Hugo. As the bus system is extensive, it's easy to use Saint Peter Port as your base, while exploring the rest of Guernsey.
