An all-weather walk/day out suggestion

For an autumn or winter day out, BWs recommends a visit to the town of Guingamp. Not only is it a particularly attractive little place with good shops, many medieval buildings and an interesting church (famous 'Black Madonna'), but there is also a 7.5km circuit for a walk including the town centre, a pretty riverside path, and a lofty chapel with good views. There should be no problems with the paths at less salubrious times of year.
And if you want to combine walking, shopping and admiring gorgeous architecture with a good meal, book ahead for a real fine dining treat at La Boissière (è or enjoy a quality crepe or two at Creperie St-Yves in rue St-Yves or Creperie du Roy near the tourist office. (The TO is closed on Mon, Wed, Sun.)
Make a day of it where the weather is unlikely to spoil things. Sports' fans could maybe plan a visit to watch the giant-killing Guingamp football team!
