Lannion town guide
Visitors by hire car will find Lannion just to the south of the small airport of the same name which serves Northern Brittany. The small town is in the valley of the River Leguer which runs through the town and provides the opportunity for visitors to take a boat trip to the sea.
The town itself has a medieval centre which provides the back drop for the weekly markets providing not only for the locals but a wide variety of local produce and crafts for the visitor. Even if you miss the market, the local shops, especially the fish mongers, are well worth checking out.
There is a plethora of beaches available along the Northern Brittany Coast, these can be reached by the boat mentioned above or are within easy reach with your hire car. There is also a communications museum nearby on the sight of the radio station which was often used to keep in touch with astronauts in the early days of space travel. This coast is renowned for the pink colour of the granite of the headlands, this is particularly beautiful at daybreak or twilight and you can always follow a coastal walk with a good breakfast or dinner in one of the many restaurants.
