Flanders Battlefield Tours

Flanders Battlefield Tours

During World War I, the medieval town of Ypres in the Flanders region of Belgium was the epicentre of fighting on the Western Front, with the Allied army suffering its heaviest losses in history. Flanders Battlefield Tours, run by an informed, sensitive and knowledgeable group of Great War scholars, ensure that the memory of that 'lost generation' is preserved and respected. The tour has been roundly celebrated for the vividness of the battle accounts it gives - much of the information is supplemented by personal artefacts, such as old maps, photographs, diary extracts and poems - and visitors are sure to be awed, spending time in areas where on average every square metre of earth witnessed the death of 35 young men. A solemn, moving and important experience, Flanders Battlefield Tours have been described by travellers as 'the best of [their] kind in Europe'.
