  • Castle Cornet was brilliant a lot of very interesting history. The noon day gun and a great story about Victor Hugo. There are period dressing up clothes for children to borrow wilst walking round. A great day out for the family.
  • Interesting monument to the past. Well kept shop and friendly staff. Some days they do enactments of past local stories and historic events on the green which are very good.
