Cruising to Cherbourg

Located on the coast of Normandy, Cherbourg has for many centuries been one of the most significant harbour towns in Europe, yet unlike many other major ports, it has managed to remain uncluttered and picturesque. Simply wandering around the charming marina is always a terrific experience, although delve a little deeper into Cherbourg and you'll find a host of other amazing attractions.

Among these is the Cite de La Mer, which offers a fascinating look at the city's maritime heritage, including an incredible exhibit on the Titanic, which famously called in at Cherbourg on its ill-fated maiden voyage. Also located here is Le Redoubtable, which is an enormous submarine that visitors can walk around and explore.

If you want to get away from the town itself and experience the dramatic landscapes of the Norman coastline then you won't have to go far in order to find some breathtaking scenery. The Cap de la Hague, for instance, offers some amazing views, with rugged cliffs and beautiful beaches to be found at every turn.
