Dunkerque Travel Guide

by our France expert Paul Baderman
Paul BadermanOr Dunkerque as on the road signs from the busy cross-channel harbour (the third largest in France). For many, especially of an older generation, ’Dunkirk’ represents a key moment in English history when Winston Churchill’s ‘miracle’ small ships evacuation of the BEF, early in WW II, changed a potentially hugely different world. The army was saved, Nazism eventually defeated, and today’s town is a pleasant cross-channel gateway – though with the beach memorial still visited by countless visitors. Being French and on the coast, superb sea-food is everywhere to hand – with the nearness of the Belgian border highlighting ‘moules-frites’.
