School Trips - Pas de Calais School tours
Most people travelling from the UK to France by road arrive in Calais. As a result, the area of the Pas de Calais is one of the easiest and most popular destinations to visit. The area offers a variety of coastal and rural scenery, a selection of charming towns and many interesting attractions. Trips can include cost free visits to historic and picturesque locations both on the coast and inland, all with great educational, cultural or entertainment value.
