Very well kept cemetery. Good location with easy access from Dieppe centre. Not far away is an excellent campsite La Source with good facilities. To get to cemetery from here it is a steep climb up a hill bit very worth the effort.

This is worth the trip although you can't walk there from the city centre. If you come to Dieppe by train, walk to the city centre bridge and there is a taxi stand. From there call the number posted above, the ride will cost you...More
