We are travelling to this area in half term for a couple of days. We are planning to stock up with wine, cheese etc but would like to do something a bit more with the girls (10 & 12y). We went to the aquarium in Bolougne a couple of years ago.
The beach at Wimereux is nice, with beach "cabines" along the promonade - only a few miles outside Boulougne. Probably a bit cold for swimming but you might get away with a paddle!!
Visiting the Somme battlefields and WW1 LOCATIONS
Hi folks, i will be travelling around Euope for 2 weeks this summer and would like to spend some time visiting the historic locations of WW1
I would like to to know what museums, battlefields and cemeteries to visit and where they are located. Also which town would be best used as a base to visit these areas from.
Any tips for nice hotels, pleasant towns/villages to stay in would be much appreciated.
I would imagine that Boulougne would be a good base if you want to be on the channel. I've heard about a good WWI museum in Ypres - Belgian spelling "Ieper."
One of the most impressive and touching places is Verdun, don't miss that.
VT member Segolily has written a very good page about it.
