  • Public transport: Cherbourg to L'Anse du Brick (Campsite)

    by kp282 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 2:01 PM

    Does anyone know how to get from Cherbourg to Camping L'Anse du Brick by public transport? I emailed the campsite about it but all they told me is; there is a bus that runs only twice a day. That's it; nothing more than that... which is not very useful... I hope I find the answer on here! Thanks! =)

  • Overnight parking

    by lizperry Online Now Mar 31, 2010 at 2:49 PM

    We are in Cherbourg for one day in May. We are considering staying overnight to catch an early ferry the following morning. WHat is car parking like in Cherbourg, maybe in Place Republique, where there is reasonably priced hotel. Or would we be better to stay a little further out of the city centre. Our friends are not able to walk great distances so we would need to be able to park reasonably close to the hotel. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • First time going to Cherbourg shopping and need some help please

    by kath_n_keith Online Now Apr 11, 2008 at 4:22 PM


    I am new to the forum and need some valued help please.

    I have never been out of Britain so I have no idea what to do etc when I go on my shopping trip to Cherbourg.

    I am actually going to buy some wine and tobacco. I have looked around on the net and see that as far as tobacco is concerned I am allowed to legally bring back 3kg. When I go, I will be a foot passenger on the ferry as I don't drive so I am wondering firstly if anyone knows if there are any wine and tobacco hypermarkets very close to the port and secondly, how much will I pay for a good wine (any pointers greatfully accepted) and how much will I pay for a 50g packet of golden virginia?

    Hoping someone can help

    Thanks a lot and take care all
