Guernsey is a British Crown Dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. The population is 65,800,and a total area of 25 square miles.

 Guernsey is situated 30 miles west of France's Normandy coast and 75 miles south of Weymouth, England and lies in the Gulf of St Malo. Lihou, a tidal island, is attached to Guernsey by a causeway at low tide. The terrain is mostly level with low hills in southwest.
Victor Hugo wrote some of his best-known works while in exile in Guernsey, including Les Misérables. His home in St. Peter Port, Hauteville House, is now a museum administered by the city of Paris. In 1866, he published a novel set in the island, Travailleurs de la Mer ), which he dedicated to the island of Guernsey.
