We walked right around the ramparts, following the well maintained path, reading the information about history and the town’s commitment to the environment. The green areas along the sides of the pathway are set out as places to stop and relax with benches and picnic...More

Staying in Le Touquet we drove the short distance to visit Montreuil for lunch and a walk around the town walls. On the day, we struggled to find a parking place, despite plenty of on and off road places they were all full. We were...More

Walls round an ancient city do not come much better than these. You can circumnavigate the entire way round, with wonderful views everywhere. Terrific!

We stopped on the way home in this village and visit the old town, the walk on the branches was very nice. Beautiful views and very nicely laid out and maintained.

Great to wander across the ramparts. The drop in some places is quite sheer, so be warned. The view from certain points is just stunning. Great for a stroll around and to get your bearings.

Walking Montreuil's walls is an experience not to be missed, with panoramic views out across the countryside as well as interesting views into the town itself.

There are some wonderful views as you go round but a leisurely walk will certainly be under an hour.

Hmm - lots of cobblestones I'm afraid. It's a lovely wee town but it might be a bit challenging for your wife. The ramparts are flat once you get up there - but we are talking about steep mediaeval stairs to access them... More
