The Battlefields of Ypres and the Somme are easily reached from the UK and groups may spend anything from one to five days exploring the trenches, tunnels, cemeteries and memorials and visiting some excellent museums which interpret the war for young people.
You can choose the level of guiding you require; either an experienced guide to accompany your tour throughout, or local expert guides for your tours on site, or you may prefer to guide the tour yourself.
You may also opt to combine a day excursion to the sites of the Battle of Waterloo or to include a number of WWII sites in the area. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
