Despite being told an English tour would start in ten minutes (actually closer to 35!) there was no tour, just a self-guided one. We quickly caught up with the French party who had started 35 minutes earlier and who had obviously caused our delayed entry, they did have a guide! We had to hang around waiting for them to move...

While staying in St. Omer, Northern France for the Euro 2016 football tournament, a group of 3 of us visited the the Blockhaus world war 2 rocket bunker in Watten. It would be a really easy trip by car but we came by public transport. The bunker is only one stop on the train from St. Omer, but unfortunately, there... More

I warn that i have an interest in WW2 and in particular the logistics. this bunker is for those keen to learn how the V2 weapons program MIGHT have worked had the Germans succeeded in finishing the site. The sit was a manufacturing plant for fuel and an assembly plant and had it been finished the war may well have... More

We were staying at the camp site next doors and have been meaning to visit here for years, the estimated visit time is 1.5 hours, we were there over 3! We were not prepared to be so overwhelmed by this looming structure that was built by the Germans using many Europeans to launch V1 and V2 bombers to destroy Britain.... More

Well worth a visit to those interested in WW2. Shocking but fascinating. Shows clearly how things were back in 1940's.

We saw the sign for Blockhaus on our war to Chateau de Cocove and decided to go there the next day. It was a gloomy August day - light rain. We skipped the expensive breakfast at Cocove and were looking for a boulanger at Eperlecques (great fresh croissants!) and saw a brochure of the Blockhaus there. We spent 2 1/2... More

Well Worth Visit! We were impressed with this place which really educated us in the immense effort the Germans of World War One went to in their effort to conquer England and also how they failed in their attempt!! Don't Miss!!

Don't know how many times I have been through this part of France and never knew this was here. Saw a leaflet in the IBIS Coquelles so decided to take a look on our way to Bruges, So glad we did because its a gob smackingly eerie eye opener. Damaged by UK bombing raids, a large part of it still... More
