Boulogne tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Boulogne sur Mer is the most rewarding of the northern ferry ports.  It still has an intact medieval centre with a 19th century Basilica Notre-Dame which presides over the port.  Nearby is the Chateau-Musee with its eclectic display of Egyptian mummies and 19th century Inuit masks.  In the Ville Basse or lower part of town you'll find some superb shops and fish restaurants especially on quai Gambetta on the east bank of the river Liane. 

Boulogne is home to the first-class marine aquarium Nausicaa which has lots of interactive displays and informative exhibitions on marine life.  This serves as an appropriate introduction to the Cote d'Opale - a 40km stretch of coastline backed by cliffs and sand dunes from Boulogne to Calais.  The coast with its spectacular vistas is the ideal spot for cyclists, walkers, riders alike.
