About Caen

Caen is the capital of Lower Normandy and lays between two rivers the Orne and the Odon. Caen was one of the many cities to suffer the ill-effects of World War II.

The city was bombed on D-Day and is said to have burned for a week before being liberated. The damage was on a grand scale and the only vestiges of the past to remain were the ramparts of the Chateau and the two great abbeys. These were built by William the Conqueror when he founded the City in the 11th Century.

The beaches are the sites of D-Day landings and some of the best to visit are Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches (northeast of Bayeux) and Pointe du Hoc on Omaha Beach. Caen has excellent shopping facilities and many other historic places to visit.

Caen Port

Caen Ferry Port lies in the small port town of Ouistreham which is at the mouth of Canal de Caen à la Mer (Canal of Caen). This canal is made up of a group of quays and docks and connects the port of Caen to the city of Caen flowing downstream to the town of Ouistreham and the English Channel. Caen offers quick and regular crossings to the United Kingdom and all these ferries can be booked through

    • Caen to Portsmouth with Brittany Ferries

      You advertise disabled cabins, sure the shower is disabled friendly (but bunk beds, you have to be joking surely!!). Luckily my wife is the disabled passenger and she could use the lower berth but I am 65 and I struggled to get up to the top berth and certainly risked life and limb getting down. Make it more obvious in your details that disabled sleeping arrangements are for one passenger only.

    Some problems
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      Overall a reasonable experience. However, reclining seats do NOT recline and are not comfortable. On our return there was considerable delay in disembarkation, apparently due to shortage of port staff. This was not the fault of Brittany Ferries but they should have kept passengers informed.

    Terrible seating
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      The couchettes on Brittany Ferries are a disgrace. Huge gaps between rows would allow these to go vertical yet they go back half the distance of an aircraft seat. Impossible to sleep at that angle and deliberately designed I feel to push people into cabins. But no cabins are available as this policy has worked too well. I will not use them again.
