Square du Canada
Standing in the centre of the Square du Canada is the Dieppe-Canada Monument, in recognition of the sailors who sailed from Dieppe to colonise Canada. The names of people and events, which have linked Canada and Normandy over the centuries have been recorded on the monument. Also mounted on the wall behind is a plaque that commemorates the Dieppe Raid (also known as Operation Jubilee), a disastrous raid that took place on 19th August 1942 by a force of Canadian and Scottish troops, which claimed over 3000 casualties.
Place du Puits Salé & Café des Tribunaux
This pretty little square, set around a fountain, is in the centre of town and is dominated by Dieppe’s oldest gabled house, the Café des Tribunaux, built in the 17th century and a favourite haunt of Oscar Wilde and his friends during his time here in the summer of 1897, as well as other writers and painters such as Renoir, Monet, Sickert, Whistler and Pissarro. Nowadays, it is still a popular place to have a drink.
Quartier de Pollet
The old fishing quarter of Dieppe is a lovely place to walk with its winding lanes, narrow flights of steps and brick and flint fishermen’s cottages. It’s also where the painter Walter Sickert lived and worked.
