How to get to Normandy

Car ferries from the UK arrive at Dieppe, Le Havre, Ouistreham (near Caen) and Cherbourg: operators are Brittany Ferries and Transmanche/LD Lines.

The cheapest and quickest cross-Channel ferries are Dover to Boulogne, Dunkerque and Calais, north of Normandy but within easy reach of the Seine-Maritime (the most easterly area of Normandy). 

St-Malo in Brittany can also be a handy port for those visiting western Normandy.

You can also bring your car via Eurotunnel, a quick and easy ride (you don’t even get out of your vehicle), from which it’s an unstrenuous drive into eastern Normandy.

Or come through the Tunnel on Eurostar, another great option for stress-free family holidays. Eurostar and RailEurope both offer onward journeys from Calais/Paris/Lille to Norman destinations Rouen, Le Havre, Deauville-Trouville, Caen and Cherbourg.

Otherwise, fly to Paris (Orly, Roissy-Charles de Gaulle or Beauvais) and continue by internal flight, train or even bus. You could also fly to Dinard in Brittany, from which it’s a short hop into western Normandy.
