“Splendid afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Have recently returned from Northern France and we spent a very pleasant afternoon at the Citadel,the museum is very low key and gives you an opportunity to explore at your own pace and the film show and exhibition on the part played by the town in the First World War is very well put together.The ramparts make a lovely walk around this very pleasant town

Stumbled upon this lovely place on a recent visit to Northern France. Lovely place to go for a walk and a coffee. Some lovely little shops in the town.

“Very interesting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

This is a very interesting little place to visit white walking the ramparts. We were offered an audio guide, but choose to just follow the map, which had an English explanation.
