A drive around the Audomarois region and beyond will take you to three tourist sites where you can discover the region’s historic links with England.

 

Medieval Historical Centre d’Azincourt

The medieval history centre of Azincourt (or Agincourt) presents the middle ages in an original, hands-on way. Video technology is used to put you right in the middle of the battlefield, with test zones where you can feel the weight of the armour. After your visit, you can visit the only battlefield of the Hundred Years War in Nord-Pas de Calais!

Centre Historique Médiéval

LA COUPOLE, History Centre

Observe the history of World War II from the centre of this underground city. Built in 1944 by the Nazis, La Coupole was designed to conceal the preparatory work for Hitler’s secret weapon: the V2 rocket or doodlebug, which could have destroyed England.  It is now an amazing museum where the historic and scientific implications of the region’s darker past are explained, from the time of the occupation to the hidden side of the space race.

Hôtel Sandelin Museum

As part of the 600th anniversary celebrations of the Battle of Agincourt, the Hôtel Sandelin Museum is putting on an exhibition in partnership with the Medieval Historic Centre of Azincourt to show what life was like in St-Omer at the time of the Hundred Years War.

Everyday objects will be displayed alongside some of the masterpieces from the museum’s rich mediaeval collection to illustrate how people lived in Saint-Omer at the end of the Middle Ages.
