This attractive sailors' district is great for a walk. Crossed by two little parallel streets, it extends as far as the Sailors' Wayside cross with wonderful views over the Baie de Somme. Nicely decked with flowers, the (late 18th century) houses are painted in bright colours - an age-old tradition
Officially opened on 25th April 1975, the museum occupies the 1st floor of Victoria school at Villers-Bretonneux, completed in 1927 thanks to donations from school children in Victoria, Australia. It tells the story of the Australian Expeditionary Corps during World War I. Well worth a visit.
Waiting to be discovered: the Belfry, towers and moats of its fortifications, Gothic abbey church and abbey, many 16th and 17th century bourgeois houses, chapel and cloisters of the Hôtel-Dieu (poor house/hospital) and the 'Napoleon house'.
