Caen is actually 15 km to the south of the main ferry port which is at Ouistreham in the Normandy region of northern France.
There are many things to do and places to see in and around the port and city. These include the last resting place of William the Conqueror at the Abbaye aux Hommes, the Chateau and the awe-inspiring WW2 museums and monuments.
Occupying a particularly convenient location, within easy reach of Paris means that the crossing from Portsmouth to France is extremely popular.
