I visited La Hougue Bie last year & went back this time with my partner as she had never been. The site is quite amazing, how did they build these structures so long ago? The little chapel on the top of the mound is worth...More

So much interest at this site, from the ancient passage tomb to the coin horde, medieval church and WWII bunker. We virtually had the place to ourselves, which added to the atmosphere. It was entirely self-guided, with a fairly limited amount of information. We had...More

I have mixed feelings about this place. Firstly, the bus is only every 2 hours, which means its also only every 2 hours returning, so be mindful of your time. There isn't a great deal to see and expensive for what it is but what...More

Unfortunately La Hougue Bie doesn't live up to the hype. Parking in a muddy field, a very small 'exhibit' with a very limited range of items on display and absolutely the most disgusting (portable) toilets I have ever seen. There are far, far better attractions...More

What a shame you did not enjoy your visit. Did you speak to a member of staff as you left? We are currently doing building work at the site, so the toilets are a temporary solution. The site has the Neolithic dolmen, the coin hoard...More

How often can you say that you’ve actually been inside a Neolithic edifice, well Hougue Bie was a first for me. The tranquil setting, the beautifully restored chapel and the great documentation of the site and local artefacts were all great draws to this important...More

The museum part is accessible but getting to the chapel would be difficult because it is at the top of a mound of earth. The view from the bottom is nice though.
