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.Walks are limited to 12a18km daily, notfor your sake, but for that of the donkey who carries you luggage, limited to 40kg. ... from Paris, Boulogne and Belgium keen to experience The Good Life qualities with which the Seven Valleys abounds.
