Watching the film of the same name on a Virgin Atlantic flight to Boston reminded me of a weekend trip to Guernsey a couple of years ago. We travelled to Guernsey fairly effortlessly from Southampton Airport and within a couple of hours after leaving home we were walking on Channel Island soil.
The heroine of the story makes a trip from London To Guernsey. From the black and white austerity of post war London via a ferry at Weymouth the journey seemed to take forever. We next see her climb some steps to the post office …are these constitution steps where the lovely Hotel Ziggurat is located in St Peter Port ? Her night’s stay is just five shillings and sixpence….. about 27p? I wonder what this would represent now. Would love to know if it was actually filmed in Guernsey?
