In the past, the northernmost region of France has been undeservedly unsung. However, Hauts-de-France holidays have heaps to offer; from ancient castles and Gothic cathedrals to rolling countryside and more than 120 miles of wild, windswept coastline. An hour north of Paris by high-speed train, the region’s capital, Lille, also has direct rail links to London which makes the city’s ornate old town, creative culture and Flemish flavours easily accessible (and great for an eco-friendly break, sans air miles). Speaking of flavours, Hauts-de-France has been crowned European Region of Gastronomy for 2023,
recognising the area’s rich culinary heritage and focus on farm-to-fork sustainability. And these gastronomic delights often come paired with a locally-brewed beer, enjoyed against a backdrop of dramatic scenery. Waiting just across the English Channel, Hauts-de-France might be ideally situated for a short break, but the longer you stay the more you might find to love.
