This French Battlefield Tour from London takes you to the line between Armentieres and Arras. It's a much neglected region but with a huge amount to see.

You will visit sites connected with the 1915 battles of Aubers Ridge, Festubert, and Neuve Chapelle, where the Indian Army gave a magnificent account of itself. You'll see where Adolf Hitler served and the bunker he is reputed to have used as a billet.

Australians will be particularly interested in seeing the Fromelles memorial and you will tour the Loos battlefield, site of the disastrous battle of 1915, and Vimy Ridge where you take a tunnel tour. Canadians will find this of special interest during the 90th anniversary commemorations.

Also see sites in and around the pretty city of Arras including (subject to opening) the recently discovered underground hospital and the French National memorial at Lorrette de Notre Dame.

You will return to London from Lille onboard the Eurostar.
