anyone thinking of a quick jaunt across the channel wouldn't do much better than this market, biggest one I have seen in this area, got snow , santas , (not real):xgrin: real animals , must be hundred assorted stalls , only three of us on the aire, loads of room 3 euros £58 quid day trip tunnel which does you two days if you time it right, been to ipers this morning, not a patch on this one. On free port wifi , was going to upload a picture but wouldn't do it, but I'll try later.

Think we are going to do this next year, along with Brugge. We nearly went over this weekend but decided not to and went to Winchester instead, which was nice. I'll be interested to see the pics and any other information you have.

cheers Steve

heading over Friday afternoon, then Brugge & Ypres. Was thinking of Arras but it seemed like the Christmas Market might be where the Aire is placed ?

Every time we have been on Gravelines we have had to park long ways ! The rig is too long to fit on any other way..
Fortunately when we go there it is as it is now, pretty much deserted !
