Since our lovely region was visited by the Echappée Belle television programme, it seems that some hobbits have taken up residence in a fort near Lille.
Don’t you believe us? Discover its marvellous architecture and green roof. Let your hosts guide you along its meandering ramparts. From First World War history to moments spent simply contemplating nature. With a museum and wall walk, visiting the most beautiful Séré de Rivières system fort in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region is an intensely rewarding experience. Learn about the secrets of architecture, siege warfare and plant life from your passionate guide. Meet just before 3 p.m. in front of the site railings. Over two hours, with friends or family and with no need to wrap up warm. Starting in April at the Fort de Seclin!
Quick tip: make time for a homemade waffle and coffee at the end of your tour.
