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.

    Very impressed with size and comfort of MV Normandie
    • First experience of Brittany Ferries and was impressed with spacious and comfortable accommodation. Sat in bar area with access to table so no need to pay for reclining chair in separate lounge. Access to Portsmouth via A3 was very easy and stress free. Didn't use any of the catering facilities on board as we took our own food and flasks. Ticket prices were very low, although I realise that it was a special tariff for one night abroad.

    Great but book a cabin if overnight traveling
    • We frequently cross to France via tunnel, in fact we have frequent traveller accounts with them, this time for the first time we decided to that the Portsmouth to Caen ferry. We are so pleased we did the check-in at both ends easy, the food especially in the A la carte restaurant is fabulous, the service second to none. Our overnight outbound was marred by our decision to simply book recliners, don't ours moved 2 inches at most and of course our neighbours snored relentlessly. Book a cabin and it would be perfect. You arrive relaxed refreshed and likely facing a much much shorter onward journey.We will always now use this service in preference to the tunnel (just with a cabin if it's an overnight crossing)

    • All good except. There is only one bar and general relaxing area unless you have chosen to paymire for reclining seats seats or a cabin.Thus, there is no escape from the entertainment. Giant games and quizzes we could cope with for the sake of those that liked them But. Please. The singing was awful and inescapable. We left and sat on the stairs but sounds of The white cliffs of Dover followed us there. Have mercy.
