It was nice to discover this old port. You cannot imagine these old house facing the port like in Holland. A little bit too much touristic but plenty of nice places.

Even on a cold rainy day Honfleur is worth a stop and a wander through the streets. Plenty of places to stop and have a coffee or meal. Good variety of shops.

This is a lovely little port to have a stroll around. There are hundreds of small boats moored here. There are areas which are lined with bars and restaurants. In the summer it can be very busy.

It was the gem of our Normandy visit. The port is full of yachts, nice restaurants, cafes and bars. Strolling around the port is really nice. I highly recommend everybody not to miss Honfleur and its beautiful port in a Normandy trip.

On the banks of the Seine near the commercial port. So a bit of a hike, but a 5 minute taxi ride.

Hi ! Every Saturday morning, near the Ste Catherine church, a market is held. There is also an organic market, on Wednesday mornings I believe. This will have to be confirmed by someone who still lives in town.

Hi Pat and Bob I can see no one replied to you and it was over a year ago now that you stopped in Honfleur. Perhaps you could answer your own question for me - I arrive on the 1 June. Any info would be very helpful... More
