Roscoff, France

Rail Guide to Roscoff


While some consider Roscoff to be little more than a stopping point for the ferry, there’s lots to do and eat at this pretty Breton town. Thanks to its coastal location fish and seafood are excellent here, plus the famous Breton crepes are offered at many cafes in the town. It’s also the home of the pink Roscoff onion, commemorated with the Onion Festival every August.

In terms of sightseeing the Croas-Batz church is the landmark that stands out the most, with its gothic and Renaissance features. Hop on the ferry to the Batz island, a 15 minute ride away, for sandy beaches and a botanical garden that specialises in exotic flora.
