After visiting the museum, explore the Jardin Bossuet which backs onto Meaux Cathedral. This strictly ‘à la Française’ garden was created in the 17th century. Enjoy a walk in the Parc du Pâtis, the largest urban park in the Ile-de-France region, which is rich in wildlife. Finally, you can’t come to Meaux without tasting its excellent ""Brie de Meaux"" known as the King of Cheeses and the Cheese of Kings ! Plenty of cheese makers and Gites de France owners are delighted to share their favourite recipes for this delicious food.
