Condor Ferry in Weymouth 2013
Condor Ferry in Weymouth 2013

Condor Ferries left Weymouth back in 2013. It is easy to forget you can still drive the short hop to Poole. Therefore, one may catch Brittany Ferries or Condor to France (Cherbourg) or Guernsey and Jersey. Because there are so many sights, it is best to stay in France for several days. You may even catch sight of the Tour de France. Below, we highlight a couple of places that are easy to reach (describing a few trips we made over recent years)

We hope you enjoy this little “travelogue” of places since one can easily visit in fairly short drives from Cherbourg, travelling by Ferry. Because Poole is just 30 minutes from Weymouth and car ferry prices are quite reasonable. We recommend a few days in France to soak up the charm, the sights and sounds (and the wine and food!)
