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.

The waterfront has recieved much needed renovation in the last decade. One result is the Spinnaker Tower which can be clearly viewed as you enter the port.

    Easy crossing
    • First time using Caen, better facilities at the terminal than most ferry ports. Plenty going on, but seating not as comfortable as other boats on channel routes.
