Bienvenue to Brest, the Atlantic city that’s all dramatic seascape. Perched on the edge of the Atlantic and surrounded by craggy cliffs and rocks, it’s the city at the end of the world - and one of France's most beautiful natural harbours. 

The last stop in Brittany before New York, cross the cabled - and fabled - Pont de l'Iroise bridge over the river Elorn and soak up a rich cultural scene. Take in Brest’s best shopping on the Rue de Siam, snack on the famous Breton galettes, head to the shore or hole up in bustling bistros selling piles of the freshest seafood. However you like to holiday, getting to Brest is a breeze from Southampton airport.
