You'll need to get up or get there early though, as the market opens at 8am and shuts at midday, but if you can get there then you can more or less rely on having a sumptuous feast at lunchtime.
Should you prefer not to have a takeaway lunch bought at the market then you can eat instead at one of Dieppe's plethora of Cafes and restaurants. Dieppe is ideal for family trips as the bars and cafes welcome children openly. The eating places provide great value, which is why both locals and tourists enjoy them. Some of the bars and cafes will stay open into the night but Dieppe is not particularly well known for its night-life.
Around the local area of Dieppe you can take part in numerous activities such as cycling, beach walks and swimming. Those people looking to travel further into France would be well advised to use Dieppe as a base from which to start.
Wandering around the streets, you may find that many of the names of the streets are commemorating Operation Jubilee. This was a military disaster that took place on the 19th August 1944, where 3,000 of the 6,000 soldiers who arrived on the beach were killed or were captured. However, the rich historical culture of Dieppe also includes the Villes et Pays d'Art et d'Histoire - a series of tours that last 1 ½ hours encompassing the history of Dieppe and the Church of Saint Jacques and the Chateau Museum plus other historic centre tours. The tours are available from June until September, with details available from the tourist office in Dieppe.
