Cheap Flights to St Peter Port

St Peter Port overview

Located on the Channel Island of Guernsey, St. Peter Port combines the best of French and English culture into an alluring seaside spirit found nowhere else in the world. The city is threaded by twisting cobbled stone streets, with cafes and restaurants spilling out of white-washed buildings as they roll down to the sea. The shorefront is dominated by the tidy Victoria Marina and the city’s natural harbour, while the promenade itself is lined with eateries, shops and accommodation. The warmer months see the city draped in reams of blossoming flowers, with telephone wires splendidly bedecked in the colourful ripple of festival bunting. 

The city’s age is another reason to visit, with St. Peter Port tracing its origins back to the Neolithic. Both the Vikings and the Normans made their mark on the city, with all the various cultures influencing the unique character of the St. Peter Port we know today.

When to fly to St Peter Port

St. Peter Port is worth a visit throughout the year, but it is between the months of May and August that the place comes to life. One of the city's biggest events is the Rocquaine Regatta, held in late July. Lasting an entire day, the free event includes all manner of entertainment, activities and games, both on land as well as in the sea. Entry to Fort Grey Maritime Museum is also free on the day of the Regatta.  Visitors arriving in August should make a beeline for the Fete D’Etai when the city salutes its Norman past as the castle is overtaken by actors recreating a world of knights, musicians, and peasants. Plus, if you dress up in medieval attire, the entrance is free. August also sees the popular annual donkey derby and fair, while farmer’s markets are held throughout the year.

Getting around St Peter Port

Due to its intimate size and wealth of attractions packed into a small space, St. Peter Port is best navigated on foot. Additionally, due to the city’s age, St. Peter Port is characterised by narrow, meandering streets that are tricky to negotiate by car unless familiar with their layout. Bus services operate across the city, with both single and return fares available for purchase. Two day passes are also offered, as are weekly ones should you wish to stay in St. Peter Port a bit longer.
