Book Description

3 Nov 2010 Bradt Travel Guides (Regional Guides)
Nord-Pas de Calais is Britain's foothold in France; it's where the ferries dock and the Channel Tunnel emerges into daylight. Bradt's Cross-Channel France delves not only into the port towns but also into the forgotten France that's rarely reached. Sample Vieux Bologne - the smelliest cheese in the world; climb the hill at Cassel - where the Grand Old Duke of York marched his 10,000 men; or visit Agincourt - the site of a cornerstone battle in British history. The guide also reveals where visitors can shop for cut-price goods and where they can cycle, walk or ride horses. Bradt's Cross-Channel France is packed with information for day trips as well as longer family-friendly holidays.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cross-Channel France John Ruler 26 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains long lists of things to do in Nord-Pas de Calais and, if this is what you want from a guide, then this book is for you. There is also quite a lot of general history.
However, the maps are limited and do not break the the region down into areas, so I could not link the descriptions and chapters to towns and villages. There is also little description of places - where to wander, where is quiet, where you will enjoy a peaceful stroll and perhaps sample the French way of life.
The book is a guide for rushing across the channel, doing strenuous activities and rushing back again.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful but other books are available 29 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's ok, but we did much more (and preferred the writing style) in 'Northern France: What to Do and See Within 90 Minutes of Calais' by Angela Bird . This book is probably better for those without kids-it seems to beat the other book on war sites, which we didnt want to do too much of.
