Why not visit La Hougue Bie, the most spectacular prehistoric monument on the Channel Islands? The 40-foot mound, which is topped by a medieval chapel, houses a Neolithic passage grave built around 3,000 BC. There is an introductory film, a film showing the building of the reproduction Long House, an archaeology museum, and a display of artefacts from the world's largest Celtic coin discovery made in 2012. There is also a German Command Centre which is now a memorial to the island's forced workers during World War II.
