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.
