Welcome To Guided Battlefield Tours

For those looking for something a little more special

A memorable experience…

Our battlefield tours aim to provide a memorable experience for all our guests as you visit the World War 1 Western Front battlefields. We want your battlefield tour to be memorable in helping to appreciate what WW1 meant for those involved. We also want it to be memorable for the high quality of service and facilities provided.  As soon as you contact us we will listen to your reasons for travel and discuss any special needs you may have. We will advise you on how to research a family member who fought in World War 1. Through our attention to detail, we make the tour special to you and we aim to make you feel like a valued guest, not just one of the group.

Our battlefield tours are inspired by a passion for history and a deep appreciation of the sacrifice of past generations. We are an established, specialist company operated by Cemetery on the Sommehusband and wife team who accompany all scheduled tours. As experienced tour organisers, we are totally committed to providing you with a high level of personal service and a quality experience when you travel with us. We use coaches with generous leg room and, to ensure your comfort, the maximum number of passengers that we take on our scheduled battlefield tours is limited. All our scheduled tours to battlefield sites begin in the UK.

We offer you a series of four day fully guided battlefield tours with a specialist guide to World War 1 sites in France and Belgium.

The price of all our tours includes:

  • all travel from the pick-up point
  • hotel accommodation and buffet breakfast
  • all entrance fees
  • all excursions
  • an evening presentation (where appropriate)
  • the services of a full-time guide and a tour manager who are available throughout the day and evening
  • an information pack
  • tea and coffee
  • bottled water each day
