Directions to Fort Grey Shipwreck Museum

Overlooking one of Guernsey's magical west coast bays, the Martello tower was erected in 1804 to defend Guernsey against the French and was manned during both world wars.

In 1976 it was restored and converted into a shipwreck museum.

Investigate the Museum inside the Tower and see the fascinating collection relating to shipwrecks around the treacherous west coast of Guernsey. From HMS Sprightly, wrecked on the Hanois Reef in 1777, to the sad story of MV Prosperity which foundered on the rocks off Perelle in January 1974 after the crew had abandoned ship and all 16 of them drowned. The display will remind you of the bravery of sailors as they face the perils of the sea.

Open March - October and daily from 10.00 - 16.30 hrs.

Admission Charges: Adult - £4.00; Senior Citizen - £3.00; Child - £1.50;

Child under 7 - Free
