From the White Cliffs of Dover to the craggy limits of Land's End and from the Alabaster Coast of Normandy to the Emerald Coast of Brittany, "The English Channel" is a journey along the facing shores of France and England. Sometimes friendly, often confrontational, the historical relationship between these two great cultures has always been intriguing. The English Channel, or La Manche as it is known in France, can be a barrier, or it can be a link. Join us on a unique voyage of discovery along the North Coast of France, the South Coast of England, and some islands in between.
