Looks like a rather nondescript city in some places. Was it hit hard during WW2?

Very clean and well urban organized town. I’ve heard it is the most English city in France…is that true?

A real mix of old and new there, though I see a lot of similar architectural styles to when I went to Le Havre. Planned out urban districts with plain buildings after the war. Looks like a lovely city though, not too big and not too small.
