The town of Cherbourg is the second largest in the Normandy region and has always been an important naval base from the Napoleonic times. It is one of the largest artificial harbours in the world serving as a major commercial, fishing and military port.
Normandy boasts of a spectacular rugged coastline dotted with many beautiful sandy beaches. Although not the prettiest of the towns of Normandy, Cherbourg has an important historic past and a number of attractions like the Fort du Roule from the top of which there is a panoramic view of the city, Cité de la Mer (an Aquarium) , a Renaissance style Ravalet Château and many war memorials commemorating the Second World War.
Life in Cherbourg revolves around its seafaring traditions and there are many local and hypermarkets in and around the town for those who want to stock up. During the summer, various festivals are held in the Plage Verte Park and there are many good restaurants, bars and cafés at the portside and in the town itself.
England attracts numerous visitors each year with its diverse culture, varied landscapes and rich history.
Many tourists stick to London with its many free museums and world famous monuments like Big Ben but England has a lot to offer you besides the capital. Don't just stick to London next time you visit.
There is plenty more to England than the capital city. The best way to explore it? In your own car of course.
Don't forget England is the home of Manchester - birthplace of Oasis and home of two of Europe's greatest football teams as well as the world famous university towns of Oxford or Cambridge.
