A taste of France with a Normand touch !
Head into the heart of the city, stroll down the pedestrian streets and visit the authentic town of Cherbourg. Enjoy a coffee and a croissant on a terrace; treat yourself to a “patisserie”; taste the local food products in delicatessens and restaurants; and discover the clothing made right here in Cherbourg. Shopaholics won’t be disappointed with the wide range of shops in the old town or in the modern indoor shopping mall.
A stop in the city center
At La Cité de la Mer, explore the planet’s last untouched territory with the Ocean of the Future exhibition and embark on a submarine, Le Redoutable. Relive the final hours of the Titanic and learn about the Battle of Normandy.
Visit the Manufacture of “Cherbourg umbrellas”, a family success story. See how this globally renowned luxurious accessory is made and take one home with you.
Have a break in the gardens of Cherbourg, our hidden green jewels like Emmanuel Liais park and the public garden.
Contemplate and experience Cherbourg’s museums :
- Thomas Henry Museum is Normandy’s third museum of fine arts and exhibits a unique collection of works by Jean-François Millet, a local painter.
