AttractionsBattle of Agincourt (Azincourt)

The Battle of Agincourt, spelled Azincourt by the French took place on the 25th of October 1415 in Northern France near the villages of Agincourt and Trame-court. This battle between the English lead by King Henry V and the French lead by the Constable d'Albret was a total victory for the English who were vastly outnumbered.

William Shakespeare in his Henry V has forever immortalized the Battle of Agincourt, this has given Agincourt a place in both history and literature. Read Henry V's Saint Crispin's Day Speech.

Today in Agincourt there is a museum dedicated to the battle - Centre Historique Médiéval d’Azincourt that offers a very good overview of the battle, the weapons used and the causes and consequences of the clash at Agincourt. The museum also has a number of videos in English along with an interactive area, also in English. After visiting the museum visitors receive a map that has a driving tour of the battlefield.

You can easily see the museum and tour the battlefield in a few hours. Agincourt is accessible from the A26 or A16 Autoroutes and is a few hours from Calais.
