Poole is centrally situated in Southern England, just to the west of the very popular resort of Bournemouth. The A35 main route from Exeter leads directly to Poole, or it can be accessed via the M3/A35 if you're coming from London. Poole is a small harbour-side town at the head of the lagoon-like Poole Harbour.

Cherbourg is on the northern tip of the Carentan Peninsula in Normandy. The town is mostly uninspiring, although the old town near the port is worth a visit and has a number of bars and restaurants, as well as several hotels. Cherbourg now offers fast-flowing road connections to the French motorway network thanks to a newly-completed dual carriageway which links the N13 and A84.

This area of Normandy has some excellent long stretches of sandy beach to enjoy. These beaches are also much visited by those with an interest in the second world war, as many of them were used as landing beaches by Allied troops. From Cherbourg the N13 takes you to Caen in about 1 and a half hours, where you join the French motorway network. Or you can head due south deeper into the lovely Norman countryside, or beyond towards Mont St Michel, Brittany and the rest of Western France.
