Calais' hidden charms for the alternative tourist are best experienced on a bicycle. Cycle off the ramp of a ferry among juggernauts and SUVs towards the freedom of the quiet canalside road to Guines. Pop into the makeshift bar for a genièvre at the back of the secondhand clothes shop. While away an hour playing javelots (large brass underarm darts) in an ally behind some bar or at the fort. Devour a whacking great sole, fresh from La Manche for lunch. And when said and done don't forget to pay homage to the Burghers (no NOT MacDonald's) before sailing home.

    Hope the sole will be whacking great and great too!
