City of Ypres-Tijl Capoen

One-day

 

 

Even schools as far north as Manchester can take a group to visit the Western Front in a trip lasting a little over twenty-four hours.

 

With overnight coach travel from School to the Channel, and either ferry or Shuttle to Calais, you can be in Ypres by 10 o'clock.

 

There you meet your local expert guide for a tour of some of the major sites of the Great War in Flanders, including Tyne Cot and Passchendaele.  In the afternoon - you choose - further such visits, or some time in the excellent museum "In Flanders Fields".

 

Departing late afternoon, you retrace your journey to School.

 

(Schools further south will find the time pressures rather less.)

 

 

 

Three extra free places offered on all Great War tours from Summer 2014 to Christmas 2018.  During the centenary commemorations, Culture Trails will give you three extra free places - you may use these as you will, either to reduce the price per student or to include worthy students who could not otherwise travel.
