At the base of the famous lighthouse, the Maison des Phares tells the story of the demanding routine of a day in the life of the original lightkeepers, and the history of the birth of Le Touquet.
Driving less than one hour north, the city of Calais offers yet another hub of cultural surprises in the Hauts-de-France region. The lace of Calais is world-famous for its superb quality and delicacy, but what is less know is how Calais became the capital of lace, and why. The Cité Internationale de la Dentelle et de la Mode retells the story, and brings to life the know-how of lace makers, examples of their stylish creations, and the starring role of lace in the fashion industry—even with a fully working industrial loom actually producing the intricate material every day. They hold sensational temporary exhibitions dedicated to a designer or a particular snapshot of fashion history.
