Somme things to do...


The musts of Amiens...

  • The cathedral of Amiens is one of the most beautiful gothic buildings in the World. Its lights-show, from 15th/06 to 17th/09 and from 01st/12 to 01st/01, represents the medieval colours of the facade.

  • The "Hortillonnages" are wonderful floating gardens. You can visit them on foot all year round, or on little skiffs from 01st/04 to 31st/10.

    The Somme Battlefields...

  • The "Remembrance Trail" is an extensive website about the Somme battlefields and their places of interest.

  • The Australian Museum of Villers-Bretonneux (3 miles away) is located upstairs from the "Victoria" primary school.

  • The Somme Trench Museum of Albert, at the foot of the basilica.

  • The Peronne Historial is both a comprehensive museum and a research centre on the first World War, located within a medieval castle.

  • A flight over the Battlefields : with the flight-club of Picardie-Amiens. Have a quick look at the route with photos taken from the plane. The 30-minute flight costs 150 euros for two people if you book from our place.


    Some smart tips...

  • Stroll about Blangy-Tronville, our little village, and its protected marshland. Then, take the tow-path along the Somme to the lock of Lamotte-brebière (photo below), and its MELBA café. You can also take a walk as far as Amiens (7 miles).

  • Visit the historic mansion of Jules Verne, a trip into the author's fantasy world.

  • The Clos Alexandre is a botanical and landscape garden designed and grown by a family of garden-lovers in Amiens.

  • The Zoo of Amiens features elephants, sea-lions, lemurs, red pandas, only a few steps from the centre of Amiens. Watch the video.

  • The Museum of Picardy, one of the most beautiful local museums in France.

  • Ride along the gorgeous Somme Valley with Somme Randonnées à cheval. (Not recommended for beginners)

    A bit further away...

  • The underground city of Naours, 20 miles away, is a network of cellars and underground corridors beneath the village of Naours. But it also tells you much about local History since the Middle Ages.

  • The castle of Rambures 47 miles away off motorway A29 between Rouen and Amiens.

  • The Valloires Gardens 57.5 miles away off motorway A16 between Calais and Amiens.

  • The seaside and its bird sanctuary: the Marquenterre
    63 miles away off motorway A16 between Calais and Amiens.
