An itinerary can be made up of sites from one battlefield, such as the Somme or Normandy, or it can be made up of sites selected from different battlefield areas. An itinerary can focus on a particular interest, such as family history, the poets or tunnelling, or it can provide for a general interest. You may have a day available as you pass though the area or be planning a longer stay. We can include some short walks or just sites easily accessible from a car. Whatever your needs, we will produce an independent tour pack for you.
