Le Touquet not only offers a fabulous choice of sports, spas, restaurants, shopping, and natural wonders, but within easy driving distance lies an amazing variety of cultural spots to quench your thirst for history, art, or fashion, and to discover old and new worlds.
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.
The community of Péronne, located an hour and a half from Le Touquet, bore the brunt of the First World War like few others. Occupied by German forces during most of the war, it changed back into Allied hands in early 1917, only to be recaptured in early 1918 and finally liberated the same year. Set in a medieval fortified castle, the Péronne Historial not only recreates what life was like for the soldiers, but also what it was like for the long-suffering civilians that lived through these successive upheavals.
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.
