The port of Cherbourg is one of the most popular entry points into France from the UK. Cherbourg links to Brittany via the E03 and Caen and the Loire Valley via the E46 or the N132. On the N13 from Paris and Caen, follow signposts for Cherbourg Ferry Port.

Officially known as Cherbourg-Octeville, this scenic port-town is the gateway to Normandy. Despite being best-known simply as an arrival destination, once you get past the ferry port walls you'll find a charming location with much to discover. Cherbourg lies on the Cotentin Peninsula which is home to some spectacular coastline and plenty of safe, sandy beaches. Within the port is La Cite de la Mer, where you'll find the largest aquarium in Europe and a nuclear submarine.

The town houses many restaurants serving excellent cuisine, boutiques, 19th century gardens and many open air markets selling the freshest of foods. The countryside of the Val de Saire area, east of Cherbourg, and the Hague peninsula, to the west, also have much to offer.

    Traveling to france
    • We went to France on night ferry not the most comfortable ferry as the chairs you reserve are not comfortable for the whole night. Kids room could do with improving as my daughter was really bored. Afternoon ferry much better.

    Great experience
    • Such a smooth journey,,,I had to change my booked car but that was no problem. Well worth choosing the private lounge too. Can't recommend Brittany ferries enough

    Enjoyable crossing
    • We had an overnight crossing which i wasnt looking forward too. However it really couldnt have been better. The food was lovely and the trip to France was a pleasant one. I would definately travel with Brittany ferries again and i would highly recommend them.
