St. Peter Port

The island capital

An MSC Northern Europe cruise offers the unique opportunity to visit St Peter Port on the island of Guernsey.

Jersey and Guernsey are the two largest islands in the archipelago of the Channel Islands, an independent state and British Crown dependency, and are only 16-50km from the French coasts and 105km from the English coasts. Your MSC cruise will take you to one of the Channel Islands, the one with its capital, St Peter Port.

French writer Victor Hugo lived for fifteen years in exile in this neat little town built around the port (1855-70). One can still visit his home – the Hauteville House – turned into a museum by his heirs and by the City of Paris, a beautiful elegant white building with a wonderful garden full of heirlooms of this great intellectual.

In Guernsey, your MSC cruise of Northern Europe will also give you the opportunity to visit the Cornet Castle, a fortress that has been protecting the ships at anchor in St Peter Port since at least the 13th century, although it was rebuilt in the 19th century.

Cornet Castle is an ideal tour also for children, with its five museums ranging from military history to naval history. Another attraction in Guernsey as you will find out during your MSC excursion on land, is the Guernsey Diamond Museum and the Guernsey Pearl workshop, for jewels enthusiasts to enjoy. The best way to enjoy the crisp air of the Channel Islands however is to take a walk in the country, with a visit to the Orchid Fields on the western coast of Guernsey, a real fest for the eyes in the summer when the flowers are in bloom.

英国不是一个国家,而是由英格兰、威尔士、苏格兰和北爱尔兰这四个国家组成。众多民族在此共存,因此千万别将一个苏格兰人或威尔士人叫成英格兰人。


当您在英国度假时,千万不要错过真正的伦敦体验;这个首都是每个人的必去之处。 

布莱顿(Brighton)坎特伯雷(Canterbury)是两个截然不同的旅游目的地——前者是热闹的海滨度假胜地,后者是英国最精致的中世纪城市之一。 


英格兰西南部有德文郡(Devon)高低不平的高沼地,康沃尔(Cornwall)的岩石海岸,以及历史悠久的温泉城巴斯(Bath),而英格兰中部的主要景点是牛津(Oxford)和剑桥(Cambridge)的大学城。 

再往北,前工业城市曼彻斯特(Manchester)、利物浦(Liverpool)纽卡斯尔(Newcastle)都是热闹且充满活力的地方,约克(York)则拥有灿烂的历史宝藏,但这片地区的自然景观、尤其是湖区(Lake District)高地的景观才是最吸引人的。 


如果从格拉斯哥(Glasgow)爱丁堡(Edinburgh)出发,您可轻​​松游览苏格兰最美丽的湖泊、峡谷和山峰,以及西海岸岛屿的壮丽风景。其中,爱丁堡或许有着英国最具吸引力的城市景观。 最后,去英国的邮轮之旅如果不在北爱尔兰停留就是不完整的。那里不仅有值得一游的首府城市贝尔法斯特(Belfast),还有壮观的巨人堤(Giant’s Causeway)
