Group activities

There’s plenty to do at the chateau, but if you feel like venturing out as a group, here are some suggestions.

Segway Tours

Have you ever ridden on a Segway? For newcomers or experienced users, Mobilboard offers a variety of tours in and around Saint Omer. An instructor will teach you how to ride the Segway then take you out on an urban or countryside trip. See Mobilboard Saint Omer.

Rando-Rail

Rando-Rail is based at the old railway station of Nielles-lès-Bléquin. Hire a buggy and ride along the disused track for a round trip of up to 9km through the woods and valleys. Two cyclists power each of these funny carts, so it’s a great way to get some group exercise in the open.

Brasserie Goudale

Local brewery Brasserie Goudale offers guided tours of their brewing rooms. This speciality brewer originated 100 years ago but only recently moved to a brand new factory in nearby Arques. Beer-tasting included, of course!

Waterways and Marshland

Cruise the wetlands of the Audomarois Marshes in a flat-bottomed boat — a relaxing way to experience this UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve. Canoe and bike trips also available. A traditional cultivated wetland with floating gardens and diverse habitat. See isnor.fr.

Go-Karting and Bowling

At the Le Carré St Martin complex (five minutes from Saint Omer) there is a restaurant, bowling alley and go-kart track. The karting is provided by Planet Karting while the bowling and restaurant details are available from Le Carré St Martin.

Horse Riding

There is a big stables just outside Saint Omer and it would be possible to arrange horse riding for a group. The Centre Equestre de L’Ecusson has a website and Facebook page.

Golf

There are some great golf courses nearby. It may be advisable to pre-book tee times to ensure you get the time that suits you. We have more information about the local options on our Golf page.
