  • We took a tour through the castle and it was amazing. If you tour it at noon you can watch the daily canon firing. You could spend half a day there easily. Wonderful garden and views of the harbor from the ramparts. 33' tidal change too.
  • Lots of things to see, a few museums with lots to learn. Enjoyed it even on a rainy day
  • amazing place, would have been nice to go into the bunkers though
  • Interesting castle to visit whilst you visit Guernsey. There are a variety of museums inside the grounds and the views from the top are very nice. The £10 entrance ticket for each adult was a little expensive and the cafe had quite limited options when we visited but this is still an interesting site to explore.
  • Apart from the stunning view, you get when visiting the sight, I would to point out the lovely museum, which is situated right at the entrance of the castle. The displayed items are well presented and very informative.
