The port of Boulogne France



Places to visit in Boulogne

We visit the port several times a year it makes a good base for touring Northern France.

With its easy access to the A16 motorway and the major roads in the area

Boulogne is a busy cross channel port in France. The harbour is right in the city centre. There are several fishing boats that operate from the port as well as the privately owned small boats.

The marina has 470 berths. If you head for the marina there is a good car park which is very close to the main shops.

There is a good mix of shops and cafes all in a fairly compact area of 5 to 6 streets. If you still want to shop when you leave the marina car park.

Head over the bridge onto the four lane road towards the A 16. In about 2 miles you will come to a large retail park with every retail outlet plus a Mac donalds fast food restaurant.There are plenty of good cafes and restaurants at reasonable prices in the town
