Hesdin makes a good centre for touring the area we have just spent a week there.

Among the places we visited were Azincourt the battlefield and village about 10 miles.

Crecy small town and another famous battle similar distance.

The towns of the Somme with WW1 interest 50 miles.

Cities like Lille 60 miles and seaside towns 30 miles Berck and Le Touquet. Paris is about 150 miles

Update

It as been a few years since we stayed in the area.We have driven through Hesdin a couple of times but had not time to stop. This year we managed to find a nice house to rent in the village of Wamin .Which is at the opposite end of town to our last visit.Wamin is on the edge of the forest of Hesdin about 3 mile outside of the town.
