Le Havre is France’s second largest port and is quite
busy. Numerous large container ships and other cargo
ships use the port and there are seemingly miles of
cargo facilities surrounding the piers.
Le Havre has a cruise terminal. However, a former warehouse is also frequently used in addition.
The port operates a shuttle that takes passengers to two locations in the center of the city. There is usually a nominal charge.
It is about a 20 minute walk from the cruise terminal to the train station in the center of town. However, walking through the port area is not always permitted.
