From the Author
I have become passionate about this area of France - and want you to be, too! This part of the Nord, the Pas-de-Calais and the Somme makes ideal short-break country: the minute you step off the ferry or drive from the tunnel you can set about exploring it.

Whatever your interest - fine art, golf, sandcastle-building, churches, battlefields, blockhouses, markets, bird-watching, factory-shopping, walking, cycling - you will find plenty of suggestions here. And I have picked out some quirky estaminets where you can often play pub games and choose your drink from a list of 40 or more beers.

I have given a small selection of hotels, B&Bs and restaurants, but it was not my aim to cover what others have already done so well and so comprehensively. My book is a complement to those publications. Look on it as a guide to what to do between meals!
