Victor Hugo site launched

Sunday 28 April 2019

VisitGuernsey has launched a new 'microsite' dedicated to Victor Hugo's life in Guernsey.

The online pages aim to capture the interest of those who have a love for, or are curious about the works of Hugo, and link that interest with holidays in the island.

The site showcases locations that inspired the cultural icon, while also pointing out Guernsey's relevant attractions.

It takes a story-telling approach to Hugo's time in the Bailiwick, making use of specially commissioned art, historical photographs and quotations to help bring his island experiences to life. A number of tabs offer information on different areas including Hauteville House, St Peter Port, Sark, Coastal Walks, Folklore and Legacy.

Links are included throughout the site, encouraging users to click through bookable activities.
