*************
Saint Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey as well as the main port. The population in 2001 was 16,488. In Guernsiais and in French, historically the official language of Guernsey, the name of the town and its surrounding parish is St Pierre Port. The “port” distinguishes this parish from Saint Pierre Du Bois.

As well as being a parish, St. Peter Port is a small town consisting mostly of steep narrow streets and steps on the overlooking slopes. It is known that a trading post/town has existed here since before Roman times, the pre-Christian name of which has not survived into the modern era.

The post code for addresses in this parish starts with GY1.

People from St. Peter Port, were nicknamed “les Villais” (the townspeople) or “cllichards” in Guernsiais.
St. Peter Port is located on the east coast of Guernsey. It borders St Sampson’s in the north, The Vale in the north-west, St Andrew’s in the west and St Martin’s in the south.

On the seaward side it faces Herm to the east, across the Little Roussel, and Sark and Brecqhou even further east across the Big Roussel between them and Herm. The Brhon Tower sits in the Little Roussel between St Peter Port and Herm.
