Chantilly tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Chantilly is an elegant town and the horse-racing capital of France.  Horse-racing was first introduced from England in 1830 and today Chantilly still trains some 3,000 thoroughbreds in the surrounding forests and countryside.  June marks the beginning of the flat racing season, attracting society's big wigs for the two historic trophies - the Prix du Jockey-Club and Prix de Diane-Hermes.

However, Chantilly has more to offer than just horse-racing.  Its chateaus, parks, forests and lakes should keep you busy.  If you do manage to exhaust these options there's always the Parc Asterix to investigate in nearby Plailly!
