Come and visit our museums and exhibitions tailored to suit all tastes.


Bathed in the Gulf Stream with an exceptionally temperate climate, Cherbourg has become a centre of interest for lovers of plant life and botany. Our parks and gardens are overflowing with an amazing variety of plants which are usually only found in tropical climes.


The Cotentin peninsula has an extensive coastline with a wide range of seaside activities on offer. On the water, in the water, under the water, in the air or on the sand, there is something for everyone at the seaside!
