Don't just use Cher bourg as a place to join or leave the ferry. There is so much else to see. The reconstruction has left some fabulous buildings to admire. Not least the theatre in the main square.

Easy Brittany ferry journey with B&B deal from Poole. Great to see a bit of France,port a bit drab,plenty of restaurants and places to visit. Cherbourg is a bit drab and some streets a bit rough. Worth a visit.
