We weren't in Cherbourg very long, before it was time to catch the tide for Normandy. So not much time for sightseeing, although there is much to see here.
A D Day landing museum and a lovely beach littered with the remains of the Mulberry Harbours left during the D Day landings.
The Coast Road
There are wonderful views and plenty of parking places along the coast road to the East of Cherbourg
St Mare Eglise
Made famous by the D Day landings by the US paratroopers, it has a D Day museum but this quiet town also has charm.
