About Cherbourg Ferry Port

One of the busiest ferry ports in France, Cherbourg links Normandy to the United Kingdom and Ireland and is easily accessible from the rest of France. It is about a four hour drive by rental car from Paris and roughly four hours' drive from Bordeaux. If you're heading to Brittany from Cherbourg, take the E03 (southwards towards Avranches), whereas travellers to Caen and the Loire Valley should take the E46.

About Cherbourg

Cherbourg is chiefly an entry and exit point to France for ferry travellers, but if you are going to be in Cherbourg for a while, you can see the dock where the Titanic made one of its final ports of call before its tragic end. You'll find it directly beside the ferry terminals.

Families may enjoy a visit to the Cite de la Mer, an aquarium located in the refurbished trans-Atlantic railway terminal in Cherbourg. While there, pay a visit to the ocean diving area and see a former French Army submarine. The museum dates from 2002, although the railway terminal was built in 1933.
