Brittany

Getting there & around

Ferries link St-Malo with the Channel Islands and the English ports of Portsmouth, Poole and Weymouth. From Roscoff there are ferries to Plymouth (UK) and Cork (Ireland).

Brittany’s major towns and cities have rail connections but routes leave the interior poorly served. The bus network is extensive, if often infrequent.

Definitely consider renting a car or motorbike or bringing your own, especially if you’re keen on exploring out-of-the-way destinations. Cycling is extremely popular, and bike-rental places are never hard to find. If touring the region by canal boat, contact the Service de la Navigation (in Rennes 02 99 59 20 60, in Lorient 02 97 64 85 20) for information on boats, moorings and locks.
