Hire a car in Calais

France’s gateway to England, Calais has dug out its place in history as a momentous seaside port.

Though most visitors quickly pass through the town after crossing the English Channel, it holds an intriguing blend of French and British flavours that are worth investigating. Calais centres around monuments that allude to its turbulent and high-class past as well as elegant statues carved by the talented hand of Rodin.

From Calais, you can take a drive along the Côte d'Opale and relax upon its 120 kilometres of sand dune riddled beaches. Find your perfect car hire with easyCar and explore the unspoilt landscapes and lively towns of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region.

Calais, the popular port just a hop across the English Channel, is filled with attractions and hidden treasures. Steeped in heritage tied with its English neighbours, Calais is a superb place to explore, or to use as a starting point for venturing further into France. Hiring a car in Calais is a great low-cost way to explore this colourful port town and the surrounding region.

Things to do in Calais

The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in the north of France is only a short boat ride from England and a skip away from Belgium. Calais is one of the most popular entry-points for British tourists, but the port and the surrounding area are fascinating places to explore. From its medieval fortified walls to its wonderful museums, Calais has plenty of attractions for the visitor. Of course, many people arrive in Calais with the intention of touring further into France, so renting a car in Calais is the most convenient ways to continue your onward journey. The Calais Museum of Fine Arts and Lace is a fascinating place to see the history of lace making, one of the traditional crafts of Calais and the surrounding area. You can still find lace in many of the shops and markets in the town. The Calais Museum is another wonderful cultural attraction, with a superb collection of 19th and 20th century sculptures by artists including Rodin, Carpeaux and Gonzales.
