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.

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.

Still a major commercial and fishing port (it is France's main port for scallops), the town is also France's oldest seaside resort.

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

Dieppe Tourism – Museums and Places to visit

Church of Saint Jacques – Construction began around 1168. It burned down in 1195 but was rebuilt by the 13th Century. Enlarged towards the end of the 14th Century, it was embellished with delicate Renaissance carvings. English Pilgrims heading for Santiago de Compostela stop here first.

Church of Saint Rémy – existing since the 11th Century, a second church on a new site was started in 1522. Look for the 17th Century organ, and a set of 18th Century stained glass windows.

Dieppe Museum, rue de Chastes. This flint and sandstone castle dominates the town. In 1443 Charles Desmarets built four towers, joined by curtain walls. The perimeter was enlarged in the 15th and 16th centuries. Serving as a prison during the Revolution, it became a barracks in the 18th century. Now a museum, it contains a remarkable collection of carved ivories, as well as impressionist paintings. Open: 01/06 – 30/09, daily from 10.00am to 12.00 noon, and 2.00 – 5.00pm.
