St Andrews, Guernsey Tourist Information

St Andrews is located in the centre of Guernsey and therefore is the only parish not to border any coastline. Originally a true farming parish, there are plenty of traditional granite farmhouses, and Talbot Valley, a stunning route down to the west coast, is well worth exploring. St Andrew's is a fine choice for those seeking a rural and idyllic haven and is the perfect destination for a traditional and relaxing Guernsey holiday. There are still several tourist attractions in St Andrews:

Guernsey Military Underground Hospital
This is the largest remaining structure from the Occupation in the Channel Islands and is almost invisible from the surface. A concrete maze of 7000 square metres, construction started in 1940 and it took slave workers from France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Belgium, Holland, Poland, Russia and Guernsey, three-and-a-half years to complete with many losing their lives. The tunnels were built as shelters for troops and the hospital was only used for about six weeks. Guernsey Military Underground Hospital is privately owned but open to the public.

The Little Chapel
The Little Chapel is possibly the smallest chapel in the world - 9 feet long by 4.5 feet wide. It was built as a miniature version of the famous grotto and basilica at Lourdes in France by Brother Déodat in 1914. A work of art and a labour of love, the Little Chapel is beautifully decorated with seashells, pebbles and colourful pieces of broken china and there is an ongoing programme of repairs and improvements. There is no charge to enter the Little Chapel, but they do rely totally on public donations.

Next to the chapel is the Guernsey Clockmakers, a large showroom featuring handmade clocks and barometers by the makers and importers of fine clocks.
