BETWEEN PARIS AND LILLE

Halfway between Paris and Lille, one could be forgiven for thinking that Amiens wouldn't have many shops ... in fact the opposite is true!
Amiens is the ideal shopping destination. Easy access, few traffic jams, good choice of underground car parks - and you've arrived at this hub with its 600 shops.
The town centre is pedestrianized and many shops are concentrated in the Rue de Noyon and the Rue des 3 Cailloux.

Take a break from your shopping marathon on the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville or the Place Gambetta - perfect for enjoying a relaxing drink.

GOURMET SHOPPING

Be sure to pay a visit to the recently renovated 'Halle au frais' (market hall), below the belfry: Amiens duck pâté, Picardy cheese, vegetables from the Hortillonnages, 'gâteau battu' (local brioche) and 'ficelle picarde' (savoury stuffed pancake). A gourmet shopper's delight.

FLEA MARKETS, CHRISTMAS MARKET

If you're a keen collector of vintage objects or antiques, don't miss the 'grandes réderies' in spring and autumn and check out the antique dealers arcade.

In December Amiens is home to the largest Christmas market in northern France: 130 chalets selling Christmas decorations and treats, arts and crafts that make excellent presents.

 

Let's talk ToGaël Mordacq

PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL SHOPKEEPER'S FEDERATION

"Over 20 years Amiens has made some very impressive changes: renovating the Saint-Leu district, historic and tourist heart of the town, pedestrianizing the town centre, developing the area around the cathedral, restoring the Perret buildings near the railway station - the town has been transformed, making it pleasant to live in and attractive to tourists."
