A complete change of scenery – literally just the other side of the Channel!
Because it starts at Calais, Hauts-de-France is likely to be the first region of France your feet hit the ground on, so close in fact that you can actually see it from the south coast of England!
As a result, it really couldn’t be easier to get to, and makes frequent weekend flits all the more feasible.
Unlike many regions in France, you don’t have to fly to get here (all good news for the planet!) and you can choose to cross the Channel either by ferry, tunnel or Eurostar.
So whether you’re with friends, family, solo or with your partner, a whole new world of landscapes, seascapes, cultural horizons and gastro highlights is just a Channel away, just 26 miles as the crow flies!
