Calais, have you ever take a train… under the sea?

You will find Calais in the French department Pas de Calais between the Channel and the North Sea. Only 38 kilometres away from the English coasts, Calais is world-known thanks to the Channel Tunnel and of course its famous lace.

About France

Start your discovery of Calais by climbing up to the top of the lighthouse to appreciate a magnificent view onto sea, countryside and town.

Take a walk in the 16th century Citadel of which two Doors are listed Historical Monuments. Be amazed by the "Red Fort" built on stilts in the 17th century and the "Nieulay Fort" restored from 1989. Don’t miss the 38 meters high "Tour du Guet" from the 13th century, one of the oldest monuments of Calais, located nearby the famous "Place d’Armes".

Take time to see the lovely Notre-Dame church in its specific Tudor style and the most famous sculpture by Rodin: "Les Bourgeois de Calais".

    Stuttgart to Regensburg Trip | Ivan w. | 2015/04/24
    "There was no indication anywhere as to where to go once we reached Stuttgart from Paris. Language was a problem since we don't speak German or French. Contradicting instructions were given by the conductors as to where to connect to the next train to Regensburg since there was no direct train from Stuttgart to Regensburg. Other than that, the ride itself, once we got on the train, was okay. "

    Frethun to Paris | Paul b. | 2014/11/12
    "A convenient and quick service to Paris, marred only by duplicate booking of several seats in my 1st Class compartment. There were however many empty seats for me to occupy so it was not too disruptive. "

    excellent way to travel | Mary-ann k. | 2014/09/27
    "Very comfortable trip across to France from London. The carriages were very clean and easy to access. Luggage storage was easy with storage for the larger bags at the front of our carriage, then a double rack system above our seats for backpacks and smaller hand luggage. We were a group of four so had a central table which was great to share food or play cards, etc. Good sound system to let us know when our station, Calais-Frethun had arrived. "

    "Nice ride. The only problem is the lack of more services in the Calais-Frethun station - No restaurant, Not enough restrooms. Not enough benches or seats in the waiting area. Other than that the ride was very nice and we enjoyed it. "
