Soaring church towers have embellished Caen’s skyline since William the Conqueror’s time. In World War II, D-Day operations kicked off just down the Orne river.

Many bars and restaurants complete Caen’s offerings.

Dieppe - Enjoy sunshine on the coast line

Dieppe is a real gem of a town. With its heart nestled in between two cliffs, its historic castle overlooking the rooftops, its wide seafront lawns and its ever-changing skies and seascapes, it has long been a favourite for cross-Channel visitors. In Dieppe, there is always something going on, from the world-famous kite festival to Europe’s only Canadian film festival, not forgetting the yummy herring fair held in November. Also, the town’s Saturday morning market was recently voted the second best in France!

Cherbourg - Walk around at ancient channel port

Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, one of France’s great Channel ports, is closely linked to French naval history and to the transatlantic adventures. The Titanic even made its final stop here on its fateful journey, as recalled at the Cité de la Mer, one of the port’s main tourist attractions. Recently, the town’s busy quays have been refurbished and Cherbourg has become a popular port of call for cruise ships. Don’t miss the famous ‘Parapluies de Cherbourg’ umbrella factory if you like some off the beaten activities.
