Summary

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.John Ruler writes on the Nord-Pas de Calais region for newspapers and magazines and has an extensive photo library.
