Dieppe Hotels

Historic Dieppe sits on a long stretch of sandy coastline, overlooking the calm seas of the English Channel, and making it a popular arrival point for ferries from England. For many years it was a small fishing village, and the industry still thrives, with Dieppe famous for its freshly caught seafood and excellent restaurants. Many visitors to the town are here for the historic sights, and Dieppe was an important spot during the Hundred Years War and WW2, with tours and memorials dedicated to the town's history.

Things to see

Château de Dieppe is perched on the clifftop, looking out to the sea and keeping watch over the town. The original castle was built in the 12th century, although it was destroyed, and the current castle made of flint and sandstone was built around the 15th century. There are round flanking towers and brick bastions that give it the look of a traditional French castle, and if you take a guided tour you can climb the towers and enjoy panoramic views of Dieppe. Saint Jacques Church‎ was built between the 12th and 16th centuries, with many different styles of Gothic architecture to enjoy. This dramatic church has many fascinating features, from the brightly coloured stained glass to marble statues. At Dieppe Beach you can sit on the golden sands and watch the ferries coming into harbour. If the sea is too cold for a dip, then there are heated indoor and outdoor salt water pools close to the beach which are open year round, and you can enjoy soothing thalassotherapy treatments too.
