Directions to Castle Cornet

Explore the historic walls and towers, enjoy the restored gardens and visit five great gardens. You will be surprised how large the Castle is and how many things there are to do. A Napoleonic cannon is fired each day at noon during the season and there are costumed re-enactors each afternoon from Tuesday-Sunday.

The walls of this impressive building are filled with music on Friday evenings in July and August, courtesy of the free 'Castle Nights' events featuring all kinds of music from rock and blues to folk and classical.

There are 5 Museums to be enjoyed at Castle Cornet:

The story of Castle Cornet Museum

The Maritime Museum

The 201 Squadron (RAF) Museum

The Royal Guernsey Light Infantry Museum

The Royal Guernsey Militia Museum

The Castle's Gardens

Four small period gardens have been laid out within the castle. Visitors to the castle can enjoy these at their own pace, or look out for our special garden tours that take place on selected Sundays in the summer.

The 16th Century Sutler's Garden is planted with a variety of herbs for kitchen use.

Lambert's Garden design reflects an interest in medicinal herbs.

The 18th Century Governor's Garden is based on a 1735 garden plan in the castle.

The 19th century Master Gunner's Garden reflects the domestic scene of the time.

Castle Cornet is open every day from 10.00am - 5.00pm April - October.
