We had an afternoon and the following full day to explore Brest while on a Saga cruise. We took the shuttle bus provided into the city and explored on foot. It was dry and bright both days and we loved what we saw, starting with a stroll along the attractive Cours Dajot Promenade to the American Monument. The wide Rue de Siam, lined with smart shops, is pedestrianised apart from trams running along its centre. We visited the interesting Church of St Louis and then down by the water admired the metal and organic tree and Brest Castle with the colourful gardens in front.

The following day we crossed the River Penfeld by walking over the magnificent Recouvrance Bridge and followed the trail along to Les Ateliers du Capucins. There were interesting information plaques along the route and it's well worth reading about the history of Les Ateliers which is now an enormous indoor community space. We crossed back over the river by cable car. So glad our ship visited Brest rather than its original port of call.

The regeneration of this massive industrial building was clearly an enormous undertaking, but it has the feel of an expensive white elephant.

There’s the mandatory craft brewer, a book store, cinema, rock wall & cafe, and then plenty of empty space, including lots of tenancies that are empty & unused.

The majority of the space is used for kids on bikes, rollerblades, scooters & skateboards.

The highlight was the cable car over.

Empty warehouses that might be interesting if there were some boutiques, music, art and restaurants. Well there was one restaurant open and one boutique if I recall, but a huge empty space that needs some life. Certainly not worth the visit

Les atelier des Capucins is an old building that has been restored, of build up new on top of the old one. Brest is a city that has been destroyed by the WWII and rebuild. In here you will find beutiful arquitecture, a café, a zone of restaurants that are conected in a big room, some startups, a rock climbing wall company, a marine museus with a beautiful shop, some small shops, photo exhibitions, other marine exhibitions. Very large spaces where kids play, some with skates, small bikes or rollerskaters, It is a very nice place to go.

A former convent and then a workshop for the shipbuilding navy, it is now a huge space for the people of Brest and many kids to try their luck at rollerblading, skating, dancing, or just walking around. It's got a bar/restaurant, shops, a library, a climbing wall... You can't miss it! Also why would you come all the way to Brest and not try the cable cars leading to les Capucins (only 2 euros)? That's madness!

There was a festival, but I didn't know what this festival for. Non-friendly festival for foreigners. Except that, everything was so so.

Ride the cable car over to it. It is still a “work in progress “ but it is an amazing space. Wonderful shops and objects of art, very forward thinking.

This old factory building is great as it still has some huge machinery in it. Brest is famous for having the first purpose made factory in Europe. The different area and sections of the building are taken up with various exhibits. On the day we visited there was an Antarctic exhibit of photographs.

There are a few cafes too. I think more could be made f the area really. It did seem a bit empty.

I loved this media center! It’s an amazing place to visit specially if you’re an expat or you’ve moved in recently.
There’s a lot of stuff you can do there:

First, tourism: there’s a lot of old machines that are kept intact and they’re put in a very artistic way.

Second: peace of mind: there’s a huge mediacenter where you can do absolutely anything and you can pick a comfortable couch and just relax next to the view

Thirds: books 😍😍😍 there’s a huge library where you can read about absolutely everything!

I highly recommend it!
