The number of visitors staying in Guernsey fell by 3% in 2013 from the previous year, according to the States.

The Commerce and Employment Department published visitor numbers, which are down from about 195,000 to 190,000.

While the overall numbers were down, Castle Cornet had its most successful year since 2000 with more than 50,000 visitors.

Museum director Jason Monaghan said: "The museum had its best year in almost a decade and Fort Grey is up."

He added: "Museum visits are always down to the weather, you need a mix, too much bad weather and they stay at home, too much good weather and they stay on the beach.

"We have worked hard to provide a mix of activities and exhibitions at the sites to appeal to tourists and locals."
