Swashbuckling seafaring tales of salty sea-dogs, unscrupulous profit making privateers, and gruesome grisly tales from the gallows, are just some of the tales retold by tour guide, Annette Henry
Understand more about the medieval art of “mulling” and the highly lucrative wine trade, when local merchants intrinsically linked Smuggling, Privateering and Legalised Trade together, turning them into millionaires virtually overnight!
The Black Death or Bubonic Plague of the 14th century, carried by rats as they scurried through the steep venelles linking the port with the merchant’s houses, wiped out half of Guernsey’s population. The swiftness of the disease, the terrible pain, and the grotesque appearance of the victims, all served to make the plague especially terrifying. The victims’ final hours were far from pleasant.
And finally, you will witness the barbaric final minutes of the last person to be hanged in the capital, so brutal was the killing that we never executed another person after 1854
“Music gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” - Plato
