The town of Marquise Northern France




The town of Marquise is about 25 mins drive form the ferry port of Calais. If you leave Calais on the A16 towards Abbeville take the exit at junction 7 for Marquise. The town has a large square with plenty of parking where you can walk round the small shops.

It also has 2 large hypermarkets which sell a good range of products plus cheaper petrol / diesel. If you come over to France from the UK for the day it is worth travelling the few extra miles. The prices are much cheaper than Calais.

We stayed 3 miles outside the town at the village of Wierre Effroy

This location makes a good base to see the area. A good place to visit from Marquise is the museum of marble and geology. It is just up the road at Rinxent. You can see some great old fossils from the Boulogne region and the marble quarry.

You can also visit the fortress of Mimoyecques the V3 rocket base from WWll. It is close to the village of Landrethun Le Nord. If it is raining you can go to the Cite of Europe shopping centre just up the A16
