Visit the battlefields around Arras, Vimy Ridge and the Canadian Memorial with the names of the 11,285 Canadian soldiers who were killed in France. Enjoy lunch before continuing to the Arras Memorial which commemorates 34,785 soldiers of the forces of the United Kingdom, South Africa and New Zealand with no known graves, who died in the Arras sector between the spring of 1916 and 7 August 1918.

Journey to the battlefields around Ypres; this was the main British battlefront in World War I where more than 250,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers died. Start at Tyne Cot Cemetery before continuing to Hooge Crater for lunch. Journey to the Brooding Soldier which was the scene of the first gas attack. We visit the ‘Last Post’ in Ypres. Each night, at 8pm the Last Post is played at the Menin Gate which commemorates approximately 55,000 men who were never found.

Take the opportunity to explore the area of the Somme. Beginning with a visit to the Historial de la Grande Guerre museum you’ll gain an insight into the conflict, origins and consequences of the war and the scale of the task that faced the British.
