The pebble beach in Dieppe is popular amongst tourists for swimming and/or sunbathing.  The beach is surrounded by limestone cliffs that give a beautiful, picturesque view.  This location in Dieppe has been the inspiration behind a number of paintings from the likes of Monet and Gaugin.  And with a promenade that is more than a mile long that offers a children's play area, Dieppe beach is popular for a family trip.  if you're feeling peckish at any point, there are many waterside restuarants specialising in fresh fish.

Villa Perrotte

A popular spot for art loves, the Villa Perrotte art gallery is located in the heart of town, constructed back in 1928.  Works on display feature paintings, sculptures and photography from a wide range of contemporary artists and are exhibited all year round.

Church of St. Jacques

Rebuilt in the 1400s after it was burnt in 1195, the Church of St. Jacques is a beautiful building that makes you pay attention to detail on the number of works that combine to make the church what it is.  For example, there is the statue of James at the entrance, a statue over the main altar, the wall of the 'Sauvages', carvings by seafarers and a rose window all to be admired on your visit.

A Saturday morning market is run at the church and is said to be one of finest for food in all of Northern France.  This includes a great selection of Cheese, Normandy apples and cider from local farmers.

The Castle Museum

Restored in the 14th century after being destroyed in 1195, the Castle Museum boasts several architectural influences, and paintings by Renoir, Boudin, Lebourg and Pissaro are all displayed.  The surrounding walls that once protected the castle and its men have largely been destroyed following the Anglo-Dutch bombardment in 1694, but the castle remains in good condition and offers visitors a panoramic view across town and the coast.

Miromesnil Castle

The beautiful Château de Miromesnil was built in 1590 and is testimony to four centuries of architectural history.  The castle keeps its decorative elements from previous centuries and is one of the most beautiful in all of France.

La Place du Puits-Salé

The busy Place of Puits-Salé is where you'll find many tourists and locals alike.  There are great examples of beautiful architecture around this part and although the main street to the square was renovated in 2004, the old buildings still look very much like they did several years ago.  The oldest café in Dieppe can also be found here.

Monuments

Along the seafront monuments commemorating those who lost their lives during World War II can be seen.  Other monuments in the town include one dedicated to the relationship between Dieppe and Canada which dates back to when colonists departed to find new life abroad.
