1986 TOURIST ATTRACTIONS

      TOURISM IN GUERNSEY              
                                       
   Tourism is vitally important to the 
 island economy.                       
   Perhaps the main attraction to      
 tourists is that Guernsey is not yet  
 'commercial'.  There is a strong

 Pier' level of Jersey.                
   The olde worlde, picturesque nature 
 of St.Peter Port appeals to many      
 tourists, as do the miles of unspoilt 
 cliff walks and uncrowded beaches.    
 Tourist 'stops' include local         
 potteries and candle makers, Victor   
 Hugo's House, the Butterfly Farm, the 
 Occupation Museum, Candie Museum and  
 Art Gallery, and Castle Cornet.

In 2011 the BBC published the survey online and for six months invited updates to the photographs and text to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Shortly afterwards the website was added to The National Archives’ UK Government Web Archive.
