Overview Of The Port Of Cherbourg

About Cherbourg
Cherbourg-Octeville is a city, situated in north-western France.

La Cite de la Mer (Aquarium), Musee de la Liberation and Theo Capelle Cider Distillery are all local attractions.

The main shopping area is behind the waterfront, in the Old Town. There are many pedestrian-only cobbled streets filled with cafes, bars, gift shops and fashion boutiques.

Nearby places include Bayeux, home to the famous tapestry and the D Day Landing Normandy beaches.

Fresh fish and shellfish are popular along with lamb and beef dishes. Cider from local Normandy orchards is a favourite tipple.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at the Gare Maritime Transatlantique on the Quai de France next to the Cité de la mer. It is around a 15 minute walk to the centre of town from here. The terminal has a souvenir shop and Tourist Information. Shuttle buses are available (some cruise lines may charge for these).

The railway station is about 2km from the port. Here you can catch a train to Paris (approx. 3 hours).
