Interesting if unprofessional museum

Arranged by enthusiasts rather than experts it has a charm although we felt we had intruded when we visited. Interesting to learn of the British connection

Some interesting tidbits but would have like some kind of guide book in English. Disappointed that there weren't more photos showing Biarittz in its heyday.

This is strange from the very beginning. It is an old Anglican church, and in the porch the British dead from Napoleonic wars are all listed, as well as a plaque about Queen Victoria visiting. Stain glass windows inside dedicated to dead English rugby players. Once the British expats left in the 1980s the church was rescued and turned into... More
