Guernsey's Castle Cornet reopens for the first time this year

Guernsey's Castle Cornet has reopened its doors to the public for the first time this year. The site was due to reopen at Easter but was delayed because of the pandemic. To mark the occasion staff have put on a special event called 'Back in Time for the Weekend' with activities and story tellers.

It is hoped new and regular visitors will go and learn more about the site.

The special event will run from Saturday 1 to Sunday 2 May.
