'Christmas Sparkles for Schools in Amiens'

Book Now! Amiens Christmas Market 2016

2-Day/1-Night Trip from £110 per pupil - PLUS Teachers travel FREE!

For schools within reach of the Channel Ports, November and December present an ideal opportunity to bring some French festivity to the academic calendar. It doesn't have to be costly or even stray into valuable school hours as the cities of Amiens and Lille have fine winter fairs and are both just a short motorway trip on the other side of the water.

Euroculture would like to take you and the pupils on a magical overnight residential which will combine the delight of a continental Christmas Market and a genuine learning experience for your school group in the shortest of time.

From mid-November through December, the fine historical city of Amiens becomes a Winter Wonderland and hosts the largest Christmas Market in Northern France. The capital of the Somme region, with the river of the same name flowing through its heart, the city is dominated by the 13th Century Notre Dame Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The massive Gothic facade is beautifully lit on Winter nights and provides an atmospheric backdrop to the events in the surrounding streets.

With well over a hundred wooden chalets spread over 2kms of the centre with traders offering all sorts of tantalising treats and seasonal goods from all over France and beyond. The children will no doubt want to make a dash for the Ice Rink in the middle of Place Gambetta, whilst Carousels and other fairground-style activities lend to the real sense of festive fun, leaving visitors in no doubt that Christmas is just around the corner!

Day One

Travel by executive coach and Eurotunnel to France after an early departure from school.

We arrive in Amiens in the early afternoon and in time for a guided walking tour of this beautiful city, with its UNESCO World Heritage Site – the impressive Norman Cathedral, the largest in France and which could fit Paris’s own Notre Dame twice within its vast form.

Check-in late afternoon at your residential centre in time for dinner followed by a return visit to the Cathedral in order to experience the stunning light show 'la Colorisation de la Cathédrale' (available 1 December onwards).

Day Two

After breakfast, you will join your coach to take the short journey to the centre of Amiens where your pupils will be able to soak up the magical atmosphere of northern France’s largest Christmas Market. With 140 ‘chalets’ and many other festive attractions there is plenty to do and enjoy whilst pupils put their language skills into practice.

After having made the most of your time in Amiens, you will depart in the early afternoon for the return journey arriving back at school late evening.
