Sleeping

Accommodation is limited but the town can easily be visited on a day trip from Paris. Most of Compiègne's rather lacklustre hotels can be found near the train station and along the Oise River. Room prices drop on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Eating

Restaurants are situated along the river, including on Cours Guynemer. For lighter fare, head to the eateries and food shops on and around rue des Lombards.

Drinking & Nightlife

For a drink, head to rue des Lombards and its environs.
