    I'd never really heard of Beauvais except as somewhere that budget airlines claim is Paris. I certainly hadn't thought of it as a destination in itself, but maybe I was wrong as I love these old medieval cathedral towns. Good page.

    The cathedral doesnt sound very well built! (~_~), Looks very impressive though. Nice page, thanks.

    Good tips here so far Graham, but are there any must sees in or near here to draw a traveller here in the first place? Cheers from downunder!
