Last minute weekend trip to France, suggestions?

Jump to last reply

We recently moved from America to London. We were thinking of putting together a quick overnighter to France. Obviously the Eurostar is out, way too pricey at the last minute (we will plan ahead when we want to do Paris) but the ferry from Folkestone to Calais is quite reasonable. I know we need to pick the breatherlizers to drive in France, but other than that is there anything we should know about driving there?

We have three boys (11, 8 & 5) that enjoy historic type outings (they loved Stonehenge & Avebury last weekend). Does anyone have suggestions for places near Calais? We haven't tried any museums with them yet as they are quite an active bunch. Castles or old buildings or anything that has a story behind it would be awesome. I know it is likely to rain this weekend, but that is okay... I know almost nothing of France (yet) so any place to start is great. Thanks!
