Port of Calais

Port of Calais is the port mainly used for cross Channel links between Britain and the European mainland.

Port of Calais

Cheap cross Channel fares, the strong pound, plus the chance to save literally hundreds of pounds on buying wine, beer and speciality foods, have all combined to make Calais the number one day trip destination for British shoppers. But stay longer and youโ€™ll soon discover why Calais, the surrounding coast and country have much more to offer for a perfect short break.

Calais has a huge choice of shops: three hypermarkets, half a dozen supermarkets and in the town centre a variety of independent, family-run shops, as well as two colourful markets, both open on Saturdays.

While for many British visitors shopping in Calais means buying lots of cheap beer, wine and spirits at the out-of-town hypermarkets and Cite Europe shopping complex, an increasing number find shopping in the town a much more rewarding experience.

Choose from a mouth watering selection of chocolates, bread, cheese and charcuterie in specialist shops. Donโ€™t just window shop but buy designer label clothes and lingerie in chic boutiques. Pick-up bargains of china, glass, linen, luggage, even DIY products.
