Dieppe is serviced by an SNCF operated railway station with regular journeys to Rouen-Rive-Droiteand Paris-Saint-Lazare. The town also has a ferry port which is linked to the town of Newhaven in England. Another way of discovering Dieppe is by mountain bikes, which can be hired, complete with maps, and are a great way to discover the coast of Varengeville.
The location for Le Comptoir à Huîtres is totally outdone by the wondrous restaurant. Though situated on a dreary dockside, the food experience more than outweighs the aesthetics of the setting. The Navy gives you panoramic views whilst offering local cuisine made from local products.
Dieppe international Kite Festival in mid-August includes kite-flying activities and is complemented with musical performances, fireworks and theatres and also in August, at the Quai Henri IV, there is a night market.

At the heart of the Saturday market in Dieppe, you will find Cafe de Triunaux which was an old haunt for such historical greats as Renoir, Whistler, Pissarro, Oscar Wilde - after his 1897 prison release - and notably Monet. The latter is also famed for painting Dieppe's pebbly beach, because he liked the 'ethereal' light.
