Worth the walk through the grizzly town of Calais to discover this amazing building and its perfect gardens.

Easy to get around and most importantly, free shuttle provided in the city. Just jump on the mini shuttle...very cute little mini bus. Actually, not much to see. Just a day trip will do.

We saw many 'Hotel de Villes' or Mairies while in France and this one is perhaps the most magnificent, not the largest or grandest, but the most well kept and beautiful. It's setting with the wonderful gardens in front which house the Rodin statues make this a must see. the architecture of the building is quite unique and the city deserves praise for the way it is all kept.
I should also mention the peacock garden in the roundabout across for the building. It is also a treat to see, a mass of flowers making up the peacock's tail. Very well done.

Visiting the first floor of the Town Hall is free and the interior French panelling and decor is timeless. The stained glass window is a story in itself too. The Belfry costs about 5£. You get a guide at the top telling you about what can be seen, which is a lovely view of the town and countryside and worth it.
