Victor Hugo

Welcome to Guernsey's Official Victor Hugo Website


Victor Hugo left France in 1851 for an exile that would last 19 years. Following a short period of time in Jersey Victor Hugo came to Guernsey and was instantly captivated by the island.


During his fifteen years on the island he made a lasting impression and wrote some of his most famous works.


Victor Hugo's home, for most of his exile in Guernsey, was Hauteville House, which remains today as it was left, allowing visitors to see his individual style of decoration.
