- Saint-Valery-sur-Somme – Saint-Valery-sur-Somme is a wonderfully quaint medieval town which is only 4km north of Domaine de Drancourt. The medieval port was the embarkation point for William the Conqueror when he invaded England in 1066 and there’s plenty to see and do here. The area is rich in natural beauty and much of this can be seen by taking the local steam train which runs in high season. Since 2003 Saint-Valery-sur-Somme was voted “Les plus beaux detours de France”, one of France’s most beautiful destinations and it’s not hard to understand why.
- Musee Somme 1916 – The Musee Someme 1916 can be found in the town of Albert and although this may appear to be some distance away, the museum is well worth a visit if you want to find out more about WWI. Within the museum you’ll find out what it was like to be in the trenches during the war, with display cases holding a variety of weapons and items from this era. The end of the visit finishes with a light and sound display which shows visitors what it would have been like at night during one of the many bombings.
- Canadian War Memorial at Vimy – The Canadian War Memorial is located at Vimy and is one of the most impressive of its type. The site is one of the few places where visitors can see preserved Allied and German trenches and gain a real feel of how WWI battles were fought. This memorial is definitely one to visit for those trying to find out more about WWI history especially those with Canadian ancestors.
- Nausicaa Aquarium – Nausicaa Aquarium lies approximately 80km to the north of Domaine de Drancourt and makes for a wonderful family day out. Nausicaa is Europe’s largest sea life centre and boasts over 34,000 different animals including sea lions, penguins, octopuses, sharks, jellyfish and much much more.
