About Cherbourg

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.

About Poole

During World War II, Poole was one of the departure ports for the Allied Invasion of Normandy that took place on D-Day. Nowadays, it is the departure port for the most peaceful traffic of passenger ferries and small yauchts.

    Nice and Easy
    • The crossing went to schedule and was very pleasant and even had the football match on tv. The catering menu was very disappointing as nothing appealed so we were restricted in what choice and there were no sandwich alternatives

    All good
    • Good service and crossing, just bad weather on return. Old boat so probably could do with better stabilisers.
