   St. Peter Port is the capital of    
 Guernsey.  It is a small harbour town 
 perched on a hill rising from the sea.
   As the main shopping centre, St.    
 Peter Port is a busy place.  There are
 few large department stores, most     
 shops being relatively small and run  
 by their local owners.                
   Many of the buildings in St. Peter

 generally 'listed'; their owners      
 cannot alter the building's appearance
 without official permission.
