Where Would You Like To Go?

We can arrange for small groups day trips to the WW1 battlefields of Northern France. Travelling to northern France by train from Paris, you meet one of our guides at Arras, Amiens or Lille. He/She will take you in a private vehicle, which gives you a great deal of flexibility, for the duration of you tour with them. This is suitable for up to four passengers. From this start point we can work with you to develop a tour that focusses on your interests (though only some of these could be covered in a day tour):
  • Canadian – Vimy, Ridge, Newfoundland Park on the Somme or Passendale
  • Australian- Villers-Bretonneux, Pozieres, Fromelles, Bullecourt or Ypres
  • British – Ypres, Somme, Cambrai, Arras, 1915 battlefields
Importantly, this type of tour gives you the ability to make personal pilgrimages to the graves, memorials or battlefields of your relatives. We are also happy to help with the research required to be able to help you make this visit. At the end of the tour, the guide will return you to a convenient train station for your return journey to Paris. It is possible to arrange these tours from southern England eg Ashford International Station or even London. These are longer days, but you can achieve a full day’s experience by leaving at 6.00am and returning at about midnight.
