Only chose to go here as the weather was so unpredictable. Excellent choice (mine). Very interesting and well presented. The audio guide very good. Beautiful above ground too.

When planning a bike trip from Amiens to Doullens and Lucheux, I noticed that this underground city was along the trajectory. It turned out to be the most interesting site of the three. The most interesting aspect is the size of this underground city, which...More

Whilst visiting the Picardy region on our way back to Calais we came across this place by chance due to a leaflet at our Chambre d'hote. It is an amazing place and I would highly recommend a visit. The underground city is quite vast and...More

It's eleven euros to get into this attraction which isn't exactly cheap but you do get an audio guide in your own language to take round with you and can proceed at your own speed. This fascinating site has plenty to look at plus a...More
