Cherbourg
Ferry Port Overview


Cherbourg Ferry port is situated in the north of the Cotentin Peninsula in the North West France. Cherbourg Ferry port serves as a gateway to the region of Normandy, to Paris and onwards to Belgium, Holland and Germany.

Cherbourg port is on the English Channel and therefore is a very convenient port to travel to and from the UK to the continental Europe. There are a number of regular passenger and freight ferry services operating from here.

The town of Cherbourg is the second largest in the Normandy region and has always been an important naval base from the Napoleonic times. It is one of the largest artificial harbours in the world serving as a major commercial, fishing and military port.

Normandy boasts of a spectacular rugged coastline dotted with many beautiful sandy beaches. Although not the prettiest of the towns of Normandy, Cherbourg has an important historic past and a number of attractions like the Fort du Roule from the top of which there is a panoramic view of the city, Cité de la Mer (an Aquarium) , a Renaissance style Ravalet Château and many war memorials commemorating the Second World War.

Life in Cherbourg revolves around its seafaring traditions and there are many local and hypermarkets in and around the town for those who want to stock up. During the summer, various festivals are held in the Plage Verte Park and there are many good restaurants, bars and cafés at the portside and in the town itself.
