Guernsey, second-largest of the Channel Islands at the west end of the English Channel, 30 mi (48 km) west of Normandy, France. The triangular-shaped island is approximately 24 sq mi (63 sq km) in area. The Guernsey cattle for which it is famous are found mostly in the south. Greenhouses in the north produce tomatoes, flowers, and grapes. Guernsey was home to French author Victor Hugo from 1855 to 1870; his house is now a museum. St. Peter Port is the capital and main town.
