The Isle of Guernsey

Guernsey offers a unique cultural history, stunning surroundings and a haven for foodies.

It’s a blend of England and France, with the picturesque harbour town of St Peter Port providing the perfect atmosphere for staging literary events.

Discovered by writers like Victor Hugo and Mervyn Peake, the Bailiwick of Guernsey's beauty and prosperity make it a desirable travel destination. Idyllic beaches, superb cliff walks and award-winning restaurants serving local seafood mean that a visit to our islands – even during the Literary Festival - is not just a book thing.
