4.0 out of 5 stars Holiday reading.

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.

This review is from: Cross-Channel France: Nord-Pas de Calais: The Land Beyond the Ports (Bradt Travel Guide) (Paperback)
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

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.
