Beautiful views of the English Channel and coast weather permitting. Car parking easily accessible, with plenty spaces and free. Pathway to the cap well posted and wheelchair/buggy friendly. Well worth visiting even if the weather is poor.

I say potential, as our day got cut short by a rather nasty accident that parents may want to know about. We'd had a fascinating time at the museum and were heading down to the coast line. Our ten year old boy was running down...More

Cap Gris-Nez is a great place to visit for walking/hiking and seeing the beautiful view of the coast. There is a large map that tells you about the trails and the path is well-built. It is a very short distance to the look-out right on...More

Definitly worth a detour - if the weather is clear you can almost see people walking on the cliffs in England. The cliffs are magnificent and harbor fantastic nature, combined with old remnants from WWII. Well worth to spend at least a lengthy afternoon.

I think the place you are asking about is no longer in business. But. La Serene just down from the Cap, beside the sea is excellent. I recommend you make a reservation as it is always busy. Read my review for more... More
