Seven readers to win a free trip to france and complimentary meal for two in one of calais' finest restaurants

ONE of the best kept secrets in Kent is that some of Europe's finest restaurants are located just 21 miles away across the English Channel in Calais.

P&O Ferries

Now, seven lucky readers have the chance to win a free trip to France and a meal for two cooked by a Michelin-starred chef thanks to a joint initiative by P&O Ferries and the Calais Tourist Board.

Seven readers, together with a guest of their choice, will be taken across the Channel in style on a P&O ferry you can relax in the lounges, cafés or pick up a bargain in the onboard shop where you can save up to 40% on high street prices! and will then be treated to a sumptuous meal for two in one of Calais' best restaurants. It is the perfect way to sample the cuisine in one of France's most celebrated culinary regions.

Today the Calais region is a major producer of cheese, the most famous of which being the exquisite maroille. And the nearby coastline is home to France's largest fishing port, Boulogne.

P&O Ferries

Diners can enjoy mouth-watering meals which would cost twice the price in Paris or London. Participating restaurants include:
