Explore Northern France
Despite being easily reachable by ferry or train from the UK, holidays to Northern France can feel like an entirely different world. Visit the famous Palais des Beaux-Arts and sample Belgian beer in Lille, see grand 17th Century architecture in Arras or marvel at Amiens' French Gothic cathedral. History buffs can visit many of the key sites from World War I, including preserved trenches and battlefields, and see the medieval sites of Agincourt and Crecy. Shoppers too will be spoiled for choice, with scores of huge supermarkets and malls surrounding the port of Calais and countless charming shops and boutiques throughout the cities and towns.
Those who appreciate the finer things in life will enjoy a tour of the Champagne region, the only place in the world where this famous sparkling wine is made. Visitors can learn more about the process which creates Champagne, sample the latest vintage and purchase bottles to take home at far cheaper rates than you'll find in the UK. And children too will find plenty to enjoy in the region; head to the beaches around Dunkirk for a fun family holiday, enjoy the thrilling rides at Dennlys Parc or spot rare birds at the Martenquerre sanctuary.
