Northern France

We’re on the up as we explore Northern France!

We’ll get lost in Amiens’ floating gardens, and relive the era of great cathedrals in Beauvais. In the Bay of the Somme we’ll copy the birdcalls and watch the seals lounging around. We’ll goof around in Cambrai, dig out bargains at Lille’s Grande Braderie, and celebrate carnival in Dunkirk.

We’ll eat frikandels, waffles from Meert, chips with maroilles and squirty cream, in perfect chaos!
