I had no idea about the history of Boulogne-sur-mer until walking around this delightful promenade. Great views, lovely trees to give shade (much needed in July 2018) and has a real sense of history. It is 1.8 kms, so not a difficult walk.

We had a lovely walk round the old town, went to Notre dame and the crypt. The walk round the city wall was very enjoyable.

This may well be the most surprising thing in Boulogne-sur-Mer. There is not much to do in the modern city center, but if you walk a bit further you can climb the walls of the historic center and enjoy a quiet walk.
