Shopping in Calais

Calais’s Cité Europe holds an amazing 120 shops, 12 movie theatres and a mouth-watering food court with about 15 restaurants. What’s more it has great parking and is only 15 minutes from the ferry terminal.

Cité Europe is amazing for high street fashion. With Zara, Mango, H&M and New Look, you won’t know where to start, and with a number of chic French fashion stores, you’ll come home with a host of unique items. It even has a Disney Store to keep the little ones entertained.

SHOPPING CENTRE Calais Coeur de vie is Calais’s second shopping centre. With a cosy, inviting atmosphere, it’s the perfect place for some retail therapy. They even provide 90 minutes free parking.

You can even get some designer shoes for less at Chaussures Buissart Pasteur in the city centre. This little boutique stocks Converse and Kickers, perfect for some new winter boots or fresh school shoes.
