Dieppe

Dieppe is located in the north of France and is connected by Ferry with Brighton in the UK. Close to the town there are some good beaches and there are a few interesting sights in town so it is worthwhile to stay a fe days before you take the ferry or train.

The Castle Museum at the top of the hill at the west end of the town is a must visit. It houses fascinating exhibits evoking Dieppe’s rich history and maritime connections, and some fine works by Boudin, Pissarro, Blanche, Sickert, Braque and other artists who knew this town well.

The Jean Renoir Cultural Centre – a combination of theatre, cinema, lending library and town archive, with a restaurant on the premises – is worth a visit as well. Its 650-seat theater is now famous for its dance productions. Foreign films (including British and American films) are often shown there in the original version, with subtitles

The Cite de la Mer is a cultural venue for all ages but especially nice for young children.
