FIFTY lucky Kent Mes­sen­ger read­ers have the chance to take one last hol­i­day this year by win­ning a day trip to France cour­tesy of P&O Fer­ries. SAIL TO FRANCE IN STYLE One of the best-kept se­crets in the Kent is that you can sail to France in style on a P&O ferry, en­joy a visit to one of the many at­trac­tions which are within easy reach of Calais, and re­turn home the same day. Now, 50 KM Group read­ers have a chance to travel to France for the day com­pletely free of charge, thanks to P&O Fer­ries, one of Bri­tain’s lead­ing trans­port and leisure busi­nesses. JUST 21 MILES AWAY Dan Brid­gett, Head of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions at P&O Fer­ries, said: “One of the great things about living in Kent is that France - by far the most pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion in the world - is just 21 miles away on the other side of the English Chan­nel. “Go­ing there on a day trip with P&O Fer­ries has never been eas­ier or more en­joy­able and we are de­lighted to be giv­ing 50 KM Group read­ers and a guest of their choice the chance to have a mem­o­rable shop­ping, din­ing or leisure ex­pe­ri­ence in France.”

Some of the at­trac­tions which are within easy reach of the Port of Calais by car in­clude the fol­low­ing: THE LOUVRE LENS A re­gional branch of the world-fa­mous Louvre in Paris, the Louvre Lens houses sculp­tures from an­tiq­uity through to paint­ings by Raphael and Rem­brandt. Lo­cated at the junc­tion of the A26 from Calais. CALAIS LACE MU­SEUM (Cite In­ter­na­tionale de la Den­telle et de la Mode de Calais) This mu­seum is ded­i­cated to the glory of Calais’ lace-mak­ing her­itage. Pre­pare to be daz­zled by the lacy haute cou­ture gar­ments on dis­play and some very sexy ex­am­ples of lin­gerie. NAUSICAA At once en­ter­tain­ing and ed­u­ca­tional, France’s Na­tional Sea Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre has large aquar­i­ums giv­ing a sense of un­der­wa­ter ex­plo­ration, all dis­played in a the­atri­cal way. Lo­cated in Boulogne-sur-mer. LE TOU­QUET This ele­gant re­sort is known as ‘Paris by the Sea’ and Pres­i­dent Macron has his hol­i­day home here. Just 45 min­utes south of Calais, Noel Cow­ard and PG Wode­house were once reg­u­lar vis­i­tors. CALAIS RESTAU­RANTS Calais has been syn­ony­mous with good food since Ro­man times, when the writer Pliny made ref­er­ence to its va­ri­ety of fruit and veg. Its finest restau­rants today in­clude Au Cote d’ar­gent, Le Grand Bleu, Aquar’aile, L’his­toire An­ci­enne, Les Dunes, Le Chan­nel and Le Sole Me­u­niere, all con­ve­niently lo­cated near the port.
