Cherbourg Poole Ferry reviews

  • "Nearly Stranded"

    Brittany Ferries were fabulous and very understanding under the circumstances, as we were informed by them, that the amendment made to our booking through directferries on the 15th January 2020 at a cost of an extra £45, was not recognised by them and they had not been informed of the change or recieved the payment thereof from Directferries. In view of the current emergency this could have left us stranded in England before the ferry services were suspended. We hope that Directferries reimburses Brittany Ferries for our amendment charge and we will not be using Directferries in the future.

  • "Ferry trip: out on March 1st, return o March 3rd"

    Everything went well, really nothing to complain about. The ferry ride was great, ferry people we interacted with were very helpful. My wife left her backpack in her seat when we were leaving and we were notified prior to leaving so that she could retrieve it.

  • "Ferry booking"

    The online booking was straight forward, no problems with check in with Brittany Ferries. a pity the weather couldn't be controlled, the sea was a bit rough on my outbound trip, but having a cabin made it bearable.

Cherbourg Guide

The French city and port of Cherbourg is located on the Cotentin Peninsular in the north west of France. Invaded by the Vikings in the 9th century who were instrumental in developing Cherbourg into a port, the city has a long history. In Napoleonic times the harbour was fortified in order to prevent a British naval assault on it. Underwater obstructions were sunk at intervals across the harbour entrance which were eventually replaced with piles of masonry rubble. The works began in 1784 and were not concluded until 1850, long after Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Waterloo.

There are many things to see and do in Cherbourg including the Cite de la Mer (the city of the sea) which is a museum dedicated to maritime history. The museum was opened in 2002 and is housed in the cruise terminal at Cherbourg port. Visitors to the city may also choose to take a leisurely stroll in the Jardin de la Roche Fauconniere which is a private botanical garden located in the Parc de la Fauconniere. Established in the 1870's the gardens contain roughly 3,400 specimens, many of which come from the Southern Hemisphere.
