If you go inside, for five Euros you can now go up the tower and tale in the views of Calais, the Port and the Pas de Calais region. Sadly, this activity is not particularly suited to disabled travellers - especially those in a wheelchair.

We took a overnight trip to Calais and walked around the Town Hall area and inside the building. The outside structure is very unique and there are benches on the grounds area to relax and view the scenery. You can spend around 20 minutes or so on the grounds and move on to the downtown area and casino.

The Town Hall has always been impressive, but the planting in the flower beds and gardens was really spectacular this year, be lovely if they invested in other areas of the town too to make it a bit more vibrant.

It was a beautiful August day and we arrived at the Town Hall during a Wedding feverish Saturday afternoon in bright sunshine and with a gorgeous blue sky as the backdrop to the decorative clock tower which dominates the skyline.
