Attraction details
Owner description: The National Trust of Guernsey Victorian Shop and Parlour is one of the oldest complete properties situated within the walls of St Peter Port and boasts not only the original little shop with its museum contents and sweets weighed out by the quarter but a set of wooden reed shutters dating back to 1760 and a small Victorian Parlour. The shop stocks many items handcrafted in Guernsey plus Heritage seeds, local souvenirs, tea towels, cards, books, TreasureSand pendants, items from the Robert Opie Memorabilia range and toys. Old local coinage, first day covers, used stamps, old books and postcards, linen, bric-a-brac, second hand books and wooden buttons fill the Collectors Corner. We are sole stockists of knitting patterns designed locally for Guernsey Cobo Alice and Cobo Fred dolls and Puffin. Something for everyone! We are open from Easter until the end of September and nine days prior to Christmas.

After walking up a fairly steep hill I discovered that the shop was closed until December and is then only open for a few days. There was a notice attached to the door from the Local authority regarding a change of use application so I guess it will no longer be a tourist attraction soon

The National Trust of Guernsey Victorian Shop and Parlour closes at the end of September every year. A notice showing dates the shop will be open during the Christmas period together with the seasonal opening date the following Easter are posted on the shop door at the end of September.
