Guernsey is a jurisdiction within Bailiwick of Guernsey, Crown dependency. Located in the English Channel off Normandy's coast, the jurisdiction embraces not only the 10 parishes on Guernsey Island, but also the much smaller islands of Jethou, Lihou and Herm, together with many islets and rocks.
Most foreign relations and defence are handled by the British Government. The whole jurisdiction lies within Common Travel Area of British Isles and is not a member of the EU (European Union), but has a particular relationship with it, treated as part of European Community for the purpose of free trade in goods. Together with the separate jurisdictions of Sark and Alderney, it forms Bailiwick of Guernsey. The two Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey together form the geographical grouping known as Channel Islands. In 2015 the population of Guernsey was 62,950. Its total area is 65 km2 (25 ml2).
Ports and harbours exist at St Sampson and St Peter Port. Guernsey, with its cliff walks, seascapes, offshore islands and sandy beaches, has been a tourist destination since the Victorian days. It enters Britain in Bloom with Saint Martin Parish that won the small town category in 2006 and 2011. In 2014 Saint Peter Port won the large coastal category, and in 2015 Saint Peter - the small coastal prize. Herm won Britain in Bloom categories in 2002 and 2008, and in 2012 - the Britain in Bloom Gold Award.
Guernsey Island's military history has left a number of fortifications, such as Castle Cornet and Fort Grey. Guernsey boasts loophole towers and a collection of German fortifications. The use of the roadstead in front of Saint Peter Port by more than 100 cruise ships per year is bringing more than 100,000 day trip cruise passengers to the island annually.
Highlights: Castle Cornet, German Occupation museums, Hauteville House
