The Pas-de-Calais is just a few miles from England. You can take the ferry to across the Channel, and on clear days you can see the white cliffs of Dover in the distance. There are no large cities here, but there are some medium-sized towns where you can explore charming Flemish architecture. Calais is the area's largest town, but don't overlook Boulogne-sur-Mer, with its brick houses with red roofs, its belfry, and its port, the largest in France. Arras is a pleasant place for a relaxing stroll, where you can take your time to explore its two baroque squares, as well as its citadel and belfry, both of which are UNESCO world heritage sites.
In Lens, wander around the Louvre-Lens museum, opened in 2012. Just like the rest of the region, the town was deeply affected by the two world wars.
The Pas-de-Calais is a first class cultural destination. It was severely impacted by the First World War and you can visit ruins and monuments which bear witness to that time.
