Le Havre Guide

The French town and port of Le Havre is located in the Haute-Normandie region of north west France, and lies on the estuary of the River Seine. It is France's second port for total traffic, after Marseille, but is the largest container port in France. Following considerable damage during the Second World War, the town of Le Havre rebuilt, with many of its buildings designed by the architect Auguste Perret in the pot-war period. The new post-war architecture can appear rather brutal to some people but it is fair to say that the town's architecture, for better or for worse, is unlike any other town in France. There are, however, some interesting buildings in the town that are worth visiting. So much in fact that the city has since been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Port of Le Havre has two ferry terminals. The Terminal de Grand Bretagne (the British Terminal) is still in use although the Terminal Irelande (the Irish Terminal) is no longer in use for services to Ireland. facilities at the port include a convenience store, a cafe and a bureau de change in the terminal and a tourist information office on the Boulevard Clemanceau. There are daily sailings to Portsmouth


Portsmouth Guide

Portsmouth is an English city in the county of Hampshire, lying on the English Channel coast. Leading ferry operators including Condor Ferries, Wightlink and Brittany Ferries serve the city's port from British and international locations including Le Havre, Bilbao, Cherbourg, Caen, St Malo, St Helier, St Peter Port and Ryde.

The city boasts a long, illustrious maritime history and has connections with the Royal Navy that go back centuries. It was also one of the world's greatest shipbuilding centres and constructed the first ever dry dock, in the 15th century, which is still in use today. Portsmouth is still an important base for the navy and is home to a number of historic ships including the crowning glory of Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship, HMS Victory.

The nearby suburb of Southsea is a popular destination for families and has a lovely stretch of beach, two piers and a good selection of bars, cafes, restaurants and a theme park at Clarence Pier.
