Cherbourg is home to one of the largest artificial ports in the world. Located at the tip of the Cotentin Peninsula, all sorts of boats find their way here - from huge cargo ships to ferries from the UK, along with plenty of yachts, as sailing is the main attraction for the town.

On our trip around Normandy we spent one night in Cherbourg. To be honest, it was just a convenient place for us to stay, there wasn't anything in particular we wanted to see here……the surrounding areas were more interesting and attractive in my opinion.

    We found the owner's attitude there last weekend (15/9) something to be desired. Food OK. Assume its normal for dogs to be in food outlets there

    Nice photos Sue. It was here that a pivotal battle was fought following the D-Day Invasion in June, 1944.

    I see no mention of umbrellas which would seem so necessary in Cherbourg....! : )
