The port at Cherbourg has a range of facilities such as a bureau de change, a bar, and a paper and souvenir shop. There are also showers and baby changing as well as disabled facilities.There is a short stay car park on site and nearby there is an area where cars and caravans can park overnight.

There are a range of things to see and do in the area such as the Jardins de la Roche Fauconnière , a lovely botanical garden where over 3000 types of plants can be seen. Alternatively there is the Musee des Troupes Aeroportees which is a museum housing World War 2 documents, photos and weaponry.
