  • Great place to visit of you are in Guernsey. The 10.30 tour is a must. They fire the noon day gun here, just watch out for the bang! Lots of different museums and places to see which are all interesting. It is a big place with lots to see and do and great views. Recommended.
  • Very helpful and friendly staff really made the visit enjoyable! Well documented and informative..... gave a real insight . Well done.... great attraction!
  • Good place to visit. Good views and 5 different museums. 12 o'clock there is gun fired and they have 15 minutes talk about pirates. Recommended.
  • Very I interesting and well presented. The separate buildings allow a break between the different topics. We will definitely have a second visit next year.
  • Great and amazing place with a great gift shop and awesome staff with big hearts and are really helpful. The price of the visit is totally worth paying the money with stunning views of Guernsey 🇬🇬
