Car Hire Brest

Brittany's Brest

The coastal town of Brest is a natural harbor which was developed during the 17th century into a military port, so it has a long maritime history. Today the military port is second only to Toulon and is home to a naval academy. One of the main tourist attractions in the town is the Ocean polis centre, which houses numerous marine species. There is an aquarium with a tropical climate, one for polar aquatic life, and a temperate aquarium, this last uniquely housed in a building designed in the form of a crab, by architect Jacques Roguery.

Brest and the Rest

If you’re interested in prehistoric monuments, drive along the coast from Brest to the attractive seaside town of Carnac, where you can see a vast array of granite megaliths, some dating back to around four thousand BC. Many people believe they have religious significance, and there is also a theory that some of the stones may have been positioned to create an astronomical calendar. While you are in Carnac, pay a visit to the Musée de Préhistoire.

The drive to Rennes takes over two hours but is well worth it if you’ve not visited the famous cathedral city before. There is a lot to see in the regional capital, including the Cathédrale St-Pierre and the Musée des Beaux Arts, where you can see works by artists such as Picasso and Gaugin. The historic town consists mainly of a blend of medieval and 18th century buildings, yet it has a vibrant atmosphere with trendy bars and shops, partly thanks to its large student population from the two universities.

Whether you’re visiting Brest for business or pleasure, a Thrifty hire car will give you the freedom to travel around the town and to explore more of Brittany.
