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

    Mont St Michel not as good as the Normandie
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      Second trip on the Pompey-Caen route and on both occasions took the overnight ferry out, without a cabin. The recling seats on the Normandie are very good but the ones on the Mont St michel are awful. If you want a semi-decent one you have to pay extra. Other than that, for me it's a great crossing but normally too expensive through the high season. But at £109 return I couldn't complain - 45 minute drive in the UK and 1.25 hours in France. Ideal.

    Better than dover - calais
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      We were going west of France to Trouville sur Mer, and this way is definitely the best. You travel during the night and arrive early in the morning, fresh and rested from your night sleep so you can enjoy a long first weekend day. We used to start from Dover but with the driving, tolls and fuel, as long as price stays around 220 pounds, this will be our route

    Well done, A Ferry
    • Portsmouth to Caen with Brittany Ferries

      Thank you for the service. It is a relatively easy site to follow and the price of the journey is equivalent to the price paid directly to the ferry company. Well book again with A Ferry without the shadow of a doubt.
