stumbled on this on our way to St.Omer the wife as reading through our good old guide to France and mentioned this place as a worthy visit.The commentary was so informative and thought provoking.Even our daughter was interested and didn't get bored.It can get busy so recommend early am before any tour buses get there.

This was a really interesting site. We went with our 2 young children and it was laid out in a way that was accessible to them too. We visited the Coupole as well where there was more information but not as suited to the whole family.

Everything you've ever read or heard about WW2 cannot evoke the feeling of absolute horror and despair that the Blockhaus does. We came upon it originally when out for a walk from the campsite at Eperlecques but have returned a couple of times.

You have to see this place to believe it. It is immense an absolute monster of a concrete structure. Like it counterpart at "La Coupole" a few miles away and linked when you read the history of it, bear in mind as to who was forced to build these structures and as to why they were built!. You cannot really... More

This is a place well worth visiting if you have 1-2 spare hours. This initial walk through the woods has some interesting war pieces and information, and is well done. The commentary is in several languages and you have to press a button for the desired language. The blockhouse itself is truly amazing. The immense blocks of concrete are well... More

The forest is so quiet, only the birds singing and the leaves bursting. Then the huge concrete buildings built by slaves are a reminder of other not so quiet times. It is so good that the area was bombed because if all the V2s were launched England would not be here it would be smashed.
