PERSONAL ALLOWANCE TRIP TO CALAIS & ADINKERKE (BELGIUM)
This is a full day trip departing midnight from Leicester at various pickup points
on a 78 seater Decker Executive coach. The coach is luxurious & comfortable with
WC/Wash room facilities and a Tea/Coffee machine and a Radio/CD/DVD Player for your
We head down to Folkestone, catching the early morning Channel Tunnel train to CALAIS
where we do a bit of shopping at the hypermarkets for your Beers, Wines & Spirits
etc... but please remember too many bottles increase the weight of the coach which
gets weighed on the return journey so don’t go overboard with the cases of beer/wine
- we can do one of these trips every month.
We then travel up the coast crossing the border into BELGIUM to the coastal town
of ADINKERKE which is about 70km from Calais. This is where you purchase your Tobacco/Cigarettes
etc.. from the many outlets and then we spend some free time in Adinkerke before
making our way back to CALAIS for the channel tunnel train and then back home arriving
back in Leicester about 8 o’clock at night.
