Day One

Early departure for our journey south to Dover and a Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. We then continue on to Amiens and where we stay for the next three nights. This evening maybe take a stroll through the mostly pedestrianised city centre and along the River Somme, then settle down in one of the many bistros.

Day Two

This morning we head to Rouen where we will be joined by a guide for a walking tour to discover the secrets and stories of the city’s sights and landmarks. The remainder of the day will then be at leisure to explore the delightful historical centre with its half-timbered houses and architectural treasures such as the soaring Notre Dame Cathedral, St Ouen Abbey, the Palais de Justice and the church of St. Joan of Arc whose design represents the pyre on which she perished in 1431. Another main attraction is the amazing Gros Horloge, a huge astronomical clock dating back to the 16th century beautifully set within a Renaissance arch.

Day Three

Today we visit Honfleur, one of Normandy’s most picturesque old ports set on the estuary of the River Seine. Artists have always been attracted to Honfleur and the delightful Vieux Bassin with its boats, quays and tall slate fronted waterside buildings, plus the lively old streets lined with quaint timber and stone houses. Take a stroll around and perhaps visit some of the museums and the church of St Catherine which was built entirely from wood by local ship carpenters.

B

Day Four

We return to Calais for our Eurotunnel crossing back to Dover and on home to North Wales.
