regions have always had it tough conflict wise... and Nord is no exception.
Conquered by the Celts, Romans and Franks, and disputed between the
English, Spanish and the Dutch (to name but a few), it
also suffered heavily during both World Wars and was the last region to be
completely freed of German occupation. In 1940, the beaches of Dunkirk were
the setting for Operation Dynamo, which saw the dramatic rescue of over
330,000 Allied troops. Today, the same route is one habitually retraced by
thousands of tourists - this time intent on liberating the region's
hypermarkets of their surplus supplies of cheap cigarettes and
bargain-priced stocks of beer. Simply put, shopaholics of any degree are
likely to find themselves in heaven here, especially with gigantic
establishments like the Cite Europe conveniently situated beside Calais'
Eurotunnel terminal. Even though the memory of duty-free shopping has long
since faded, the 'markets are still known for their low prices when compared
to the UK, and their popularity has never been higher. Capital Lille
site of another Eurostar stop, and is just under an hour away from Paris via
TGV. Both Calais and Dunkirk can still be reached by ferry from Dover.
Look before you book. We have a vast array of cheap hotels in Nord and
thoughout this region of France.
