Abbeville tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Abbeville is a great base for exploring the Picardie coastline abound with bird sanctuaries, dunes, forests and marshlands.  Fishing ports such as Le Crotoy are also close at hand and offer numerous opportunities for sailing, kayaking, kite-surfing or simply beach fun. 

Despite being badly bombed during the second world war architectural delights still exist in Abbeville including the Eglise Saint-Sepulcre which dates back to the 15th century and the Collegiale Saint-Vulfran - a 13th century belfry and perhaps the oldest in France.  The Musee Boucher-de-Perthes is also worth a foray and has an interesting collection of prehistoric artefacts and murals.
