I typed 'Cherbourg Airport' into Google Search and this Wikipedia article popped up:


Short answer - Computer says 'no'.

Looks like Brittany Ferries from Poole is the best way to go:

Yes that's how we always go but my daughter in London just wants to pop across for a couple of days and so Poole's not an option.

Thanks though.

She Could get the ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg though.

Train from London to Portsmouth, then Ferry to Cherbourg.

those were the days............

Flights from Lydd to Cherbourg, they would load the car in the plane and 20 minutes later you were at Maupertus that was however in the early 60's


They fly fights from there - but non to the UK.

Best bet is the over night ferry unless there is a high speed cat on the route from Portsmouth. Train down from London and away you go
