Cherbourg is a town in Lower Normandy, France.

Get in


Cherbourg is easily accessible from Normandy and the rest of France and is around 6 h from Paris and around 11 h from Bordeaux.


Cherbourg can be reached from Paris St Lazare on a direct train, otherwise there are services to Brittany and to (sometimes) the southwest of France.

Get around

A decent enough network of buses runs round the town, but everything can be reached by foot


  • The docks where the Titanic made one of its last stops before sinking. This is right next to the ferry terminals.
  • The Cité de la Mer is an aquarium situated in the restored trans-Atlantic railway terminal in Cherbourg. Visitors can explore an ocean diving area and a former French Army submarine. The monument was built in 1933 and the museum was opened in 2002.






  • There is a campsite to the east of the town and is signposted from the Ferry Terminal.
