The factory has undergone an exceptional architectural metamorphosis. You'll discover (almost) everything there is to know about the secrets of Calais Lace at the Museum of Lace and Fashion, housed in an authentic 19th Century lace factory.

Temporary exhibitions featuring today's top creators make it a spectacular stop, put it may well be the chance to observe the functioning of the Leavers machines that will astonish you the most!

During this winter’s festive season, young and old alike will be able to pick up many gift ideas among the 80 chalets that surround the Grand Theatre of Calais. Among the local artisans: sale of gingerbread, roasted chestnuts, Christmas decorations, or various handmade objects by talented artists!

Last but not least: have you ever heard about The Dragon of Calais? Well if not you’ll be glad to know it is the upcoming new attraction in Calais: a gigantic 25 meters long animated dragon made of wood and steal. It will be visible during the 3-day inaugural sound & light show starting Friday November the 1st. If you can’t make it at this date not a worry as this attraction will be permanent and weloming visitors on its back from December the 17th onwards.

Your stay at a charming bed and breakfast run in a former lace makers' residence will introduce you to the lovely atmosphere of the St Pierre quarter, close to the heart of the city and its famous theatre. Stephanie, owner of the Cercle de Malines bed & breakfast will give you a warm welcome.

A few small purchases at the Maison du Fromage (House of Cheese) located on the Place d’Armes will provide you with souvenirs of pleasant moments shared.

Welcome to Calais!
