Cherbourg is in Basse-Normandie.
Cherbourg is easily assessable from Normandy and the rest of France, it is around 6 hours from Paris and around 10 to 11 from Bordeax
Cherbourg can be reached from Paris St Lazare on a direct train, otherwise there are services to Brittany and to (sometimes) the South West of France.
A decent enough network of buses runs round the town, but everything can be reached by foot
Activities and Sightseeing
- The docks where the Titanic made its last stop before sinking. This is right next to the ferry terminals.
