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.
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.
