In Coquelles, a few short kilometres from Calais and Camping La Bien Assise, a gigantic shopping centre of more than 70,000 m² was built at the exit to the Channel Tunnel. It houses more than 140 shops including major chains (for fashion, toys, beauty, wellness, culture and more), as well as a cinema, a bowling alley and a large food court. Cité Europe is easy to reach from the campground and makes for a great alternative outing when the weather turns nasty.
Before you leave the Pas-de-Calais, you won’t want to miss a stop at the Channel Outlet Store. This huge factory outlet, likewise located in Coquelles, encompasses more than 100 major fashion and home décor brands at discount prices. It is the ideal place to get a great deal before getting on the road and heading for England.
