Boulogne sur Mer is one of the most interesting of the Channel ports, situated where the English Channel meets the North Sea. The port was used by the British as a major base in World War I; during World War II sixty local fishing boats were armed to become submarine “destroyers”. Napoleon also played his part in the city’s history when he assembled a fleet for a planned invasion of Britain in 1803 - an idea he ultimately abandoned. Today, Boulogne is a leading French fishing port and fish-processing center. View more
