Just on the edge of the old part of Cherbourg is a graving dock emblematic of the cities maritime history.
I’ve come and gone on ferries from Cherbourg on a number of times to Ireland and to ports in England.
The street markets are full of colour.
The maritime scenes touch the imagination of an old Sailor like me.
From the marina of modern yachts to old classics.
The historic theatre a tribute to French great playwrights such as Moliere, my favourite.
In every town I find there is something a little quirky. In Cherbourg it’s the parasol factory and boutique.
And of course the great European moto culture is evident at the hotel with dedicated garage for motorbikes!
