Seine Maritime – 76, Haute Normandy. Latitude: 49.92354. Longitude: 1.07337.

Some useful information on restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and shops in Dieppe, which we have collated from various sources for ferry travellers to Dieppe.

Years ago Dieppe was a popular seaside resort, now it is famous for its scallops and a Saturday morning market.

Founded on the estuary of the river by the Vikings who named it "Djupa", which means deep, Dieppe expanded and grew prosperous after the conquest of England in 1066. Trade between the two countries led to the development of the port for fishing and commerce. In the 15th century it was the most important Normandy port. During this period the houses were half timbered but most were destroyed in 1694 when the êlo-Dutch fleet bombarded the town. Louis XIII ordered the rebuilding of the town in the classic style, with frontages of white brick. Under the influence of the Duchess of Berry, the town became a favourite of the aristocracy. Dieppe has a population of about 34,500 inhabitants.

The prettiest of the French Channel Ports, it is a worthwhile detour for day-trippers or holidaymakers.
