Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

Discover more about Guernsey's rugged and wild West Coast at this Martello Tower, built on a small tidal islet. Built to defend Rocquaine Bay it is connected to the shore by a raised causeway and known affectionately due to its shape as the Cup and Saucer. It's now home to a shipwreck museum and offers spectacular views of the bay and the Hanois Lighthouse and stirring stories of those who tragically lost their lives at sea. There's also a free Interpretation Centre containing information about the natural history of the West Coast in the lower magazine of the Fort.

Despite the notion of shipwrecks being rather morbid some kids of course love such tales and there are features in place to welcome and entertain children, including Discovery Sacks (free to borrow from the shop) which contain binoculars, a compass and guide, some cool pirate accessories and a magnifying glass! Plus there's a selection of kids' trails, family quizzes and spot-it picture boards to enjoy too. There are no cafe and toilet facilities here but there are some literally just across the road at Guernsey Pearl so you don't have to run them far!

Guernsey's Roman ship is stored in the building adjacent too and the main timbers can be seen through a viewing window, while a small display explains more about how it was built and how it sadly came to sink just off Guernsey.
