More about Roscoff
Roscoff is a small commune in the region of Brittany in France. Ferries run from Rosslare in Ireland and Plymouth in England to Roscoff. Local trains and buses connect Roscoff to the larger municipality Morlaix, which has transport links to Paris and the rest of France.
Roscoff is very small but pleasantly picturesque. It was developed as a deep water port in 1968, and is the birthplace of Brittany Ferries. Worth seeing perhaps is the parish church Our Lady of Croaz Batz which dates from the 1500s, an oceanography research laboratory Station Biologique de Roscoff, and a botanical garden known as the Jardin Exotique de Roscoff. There is also a house that is said was once owned by Mary, Queen of Scots.
Also of interest is the Île de Batz, a small island with a population of less than six hundred people. It can be reached via a launch motorboat from the Roscoff harbour.
Roscoff is considered the original home to “Onion Johnnies” - Breton farm workers who would come to Britain and pedal around the country with strings of onions around their necks which they attempted to sell – hence giving Britain a handy French stereotype that endured for decades.
