Cité de la mer, Cherbourg

Published on October 2, 2015 by Chris Robinson

Cite_de_la_mer_Cherbourg

The Cité de la Mer (city of the sea) is a maritime museum housed in an arto-deco monument built in 1933. Its attractions include a tour of the largest submarine open to the public, a unique collection of deep-sea diving craft, Europe's biggest aquarium containing 200 species, a virtual adventure onto the ocean bed and the Titanic exhibition. The fateful shipped docked in Cherbourg on 10 April 1912 before setting off on its final journey. The stories of those emigrating as well as historic events behind the sinking of the liner can be discovered. A great day out for all the family. More information about the museum can be found here.

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
