Boulogne and Côte d’Opale

Being less than an hour from Calais, makes Côte d’Opale an ideal destination for school day trips and tours. The capital of the Côte d’Opale offers a real taste of French life that is practically on your doorstep. Its rich heritage has helped Boulogne earn the prestigious title of ‘City of Fine Arts and History’, whilst its fishing industry makes it one of France’s most important fishing ports. The city is divided into two parts – the old part on the hill looking down at the more modern part and its busy port. The city centre is bustling and lively and home to a local market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Schools Into Europe has worked with our partners in the area for years and we have a wide variety of school excursions and school visits – some exclusive to us – to offer groups visiting the area. Whether it’s sweets, baguettes or chocolate that take your fancy, we have somewhere for you to visit – you will see how the produce is made before getting a little free taster and a chance to buy some for yourself. Or have a chance to cook your own crêpes at one of our partner restaurants or visit a goat cheese farm for a truly French experience! Our school day trips to Boulogne are very competitively priced and offer real value for money.
