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.
