2-Day/1-Night Trip from only £125 per pupil.
From mid-November to late 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, the city is dominated by the 13th Century Notre Dame Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The impressive Gothic facade is beautifully lit on Winter nights providing an atmospheric backdrop to the events in the surrounding streets.
With well over a hundred wooden chalets spread over 2kms of the centre traders offer all sorts of tantalising treats and seasonal goods from all over France and beyond. Some pupils 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!
