Honfleur, France overview

The former home of pirates and navigators, Honfleur is today a town of fishermen, writers and artists. Situated between two hills at the mouth of the Seine, Honfleur was untouched during WW2 and has retained all its charm - picturesque houses, cobbled streets, and its harbour, enclosed on three sides by improbably tall, narrow buildings.

Beautiful, I love Honfleur and it was so good to come back. I just ended up walking all round, finding little places and going to have a look at them, ended up seeing two museums and churches and a park. There are also lots of gift shops and places to eat. I had a crepe in one of the restaurants. (I’m not sure which though, they all have seats outside next to each other).

Wasn't sure what to expect from Honfleur itself. There were options to travel from the port to other nearby sights of interest but to overlook this charming town is a mistake. There's a shuttle to the bus station but you could walk it in 30-45mins. The town itself majors on art, from various styles of painting to sculpture and homestyling. Your credit card will take a hit though! Its relaxing just to walk round the narrow streets of the Gothic quarter and window shop in the many galleries, eating places or other shops. There was a Christmas market going on during this visit and what seemed to be a Sat morning farmers market selling local food & drink produce. Not sure why more cruise ships don't visit here but head across the river to Le Harve?
