    Nearest would be Cite Europe shopping centre MH parking, Boulevard du Kent (no service point).

    Also: Calais Port on Digue Gaston Berthe, overlooking the ferry port. Then there's the Bassin Ouest aire just off the Boulevard de la Resistance. After that it's 40 minutes up the coast to Rue du Port, Gravelines.

    I would head for Le Touquet, 30 minutes south of Calais, choice of 2 aires.

    There a re two at Calais, then depending on which way you are heading try Bergues or Bray Dunes, Watten orRichbourg, Wissant or Escalles.

    Wissant (50.886741,1.670254) is free, quiet and a couple of decent restaurants within a few minutes walk.

    I always use the car park where the ticket office is.
    well lit. Next to security snd there is always other vans parked up.
    open 24 hours. No problems parking up there

    I'm guessing you just want to get home with your new van so personally if it's just to catch up on sleep then Cite Europe is the nearest safest bet as it will never be full.

    It wasn't quiet when I was there a few weeks ago and the 3 buses that park in the middle started their engines at 7am and let them fast idle for half an hour to warm up! What a bloody racket. I won't be going back
