  • A splendid view over the city and a majestic art-deco tower. Also nice with kids. The tour will take you approximately an hour.

  • Very beautiful town hall with an amazing clock tower. Really nice picture potential specially with the "Calais" letters. Great for some nice souvenir pictures of the place. Definitely worth checking out and only a few minutes away from the train station.
  • Stunning gardens and building. Clock tower is similar in size to London’s Big Ben. I didn’t have time to visit the inside of the town hall however the gardens are impressive enough.
