There’s much more to Cherbourg than meets the eye, and you’ll see it for yourself on this half-day tour. Our first stop is the Emmanuel Lias Park. Once the garden of famous botanist, Emmanuel Lias, and now open to the public, this beautiful place has retained all the character of a well-kept 19th-century garden. You’ll have plenty of free time to explore the grounds before heading on to Château des Ravalet. Painstakingly restored at the end of the 19th-century, this fairytale building dates back to Medieval times. And its landscaped gardens are every bit as impressive as the château itself. Covering 14 hectares and offering up two ponds and a huge working greenhouse, they’ve got plenty to keep budding gardeners happy. You’ll have time to explore it all at your own pace before the short journey back to the pier.
