Le Havre Guide

Le Havre is a French city and port that was founded by King Francis I in 1517 after the ports of Hornfleur and Harfleur, on the Seine estuary, silted up. Le Havre was enlarged during the first part of the 19th century by pushing back the city's ramparts and then later in the century by demolition them totally. The city's fast development and demography has been influenced by a number of events that occurred in the town's relatively recent history. First, during the 17th century Le Havre was a war port, then it was a successful trading port during the 18th century and during the 19th century many people emigrated to America. The city's industrialisation that commenced in the 1920's made it an important town and port for the Normandy region thanks to its global trade in coffee and cotton and in 2005 Le Havre's city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of the works of architect Auguste Perret. He was labelled a "concrete poet" and an innovator and managed to successfully combine modern architecture with traditional architecture.

Le Havre is a deep-water port which can be accessed 24/7 unhindered by the tides and welcomes ships of all sizes. Ferry services operating from the port depart to Portsmouth on the south coast of England.
