Walked all the way round this interesting-looking building enjoying the construction of a Tudor garden with pergola, and a lot of raised herb garden beds with wicker edging. Lovely roses scent the air as you walk the paths, there is a knot garden, and it will be a beautiful place to sit in the sun and relax. The cistern attached to the church is another bit of history. I also noted the combination of brick and stone, and the unusual trinitarian motif over the west door.

A beautiful church with so much history. I have been to Calais many times and on our last visit discovered this beautiful old church. Apparently Charles de Gaulle got married here and also Emma Hamilton's-Nelson's mistress- funeral service was held here. The church was so very peaceful and if only walls could talk!

The Eglise Notre-Dame was on our short list of places to see while visiting in the Calais area of France. Our party was very disappointed that it was closed due to renovations late in 2014. We walked around the outside of the church, which is not particularly impressive. We also didn't feel completely safe in that area of town as there were groups of men congregating on many of the adjacent streets. Glad to hear that the renovations are complete and if in Calais again I would visit.

Catholic Church very near centre of Calais and very accessible to find. Seems to be very well looked after.
