Discover more about Guernsey's rugged West Coast and those who have lost their lives at sea.

The Fort is a Martello Tower built on a small tidal islet to defend Rocquaine Bay. It is connected to the shore by a raised causeway and is now known affectionately as the "Cup and Saucer". It now houses a shipwreck museum and offers spectacular views of the bay and the Hanois Lighthouse.

An Admission charge is made for the Fort , however a free Interpretation Centre is located outside the Fort. This contains information about the natural history of the West Coast, organised by La Société Guernesiaise it is based in the lower magazine of the Fort.

The Fort has a small gift shop selling merchandise with nautical themes. Visitors to Fort Grey can use the parking, toilets and café across the road at Guernsey Pearl. You should allow 45 minutes to an hour for your visit.

How to find us

Parking is at Guernsey Pearl, directly opposite the causeway.

A Bus stop (routes 11, 61, 91, 111) is at the end of the causeway.

Access - We regret that Fort Grey is not accessible to wheelchairs or push-chairs. The Fort is entered via a staircase and steep steps which those with restricted mobility or impaired vision might find difficult. There are also steps up to the Shipwreck Museum and within the tower.
