Get in

There are roads from the regional center Cherbourg a few miles north and from the provincial capital Caen, somewhat further away to the east. There is also a road south via Avranches to Rennes and beyond. Scattered parking is available, including along Cours Jonville just east of the city centre.

There are ferries to any of the Channel Islands.

Get around

Granville is small enough to walk around. The town centre is at the end of the harbour. The old town stretches west along the promontory with the beach to the north.
