Boasting many shops and restaurants, the town centre is lively and conducive to taking a stroll, shopping and enjoying a good meal. Le Havre has several museums that guarantee passionate visits, such as the André-Malraux Muesum of Modern Art, the Natural History Museum or the Armourers House-Museum.

The starting point of the famous Transat Jacques-Vabre, organized every 2 years, Le Havre proudly confirms its links with the maritime world.
