City of Ypres-Tijl Capoen

Two-day

 

 

A two day tour allows you to include the same visits detailed in the one day itinerary, plus attendance at the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate, for which we supply a poppy wreath from the British Legion and arrange your participation in the ceremony.

 

On the second day, you may visit the sites of the Somme, based on Albert.  These include the trenches at Beaumont-Hamel, the immense Lochnagar crater and the Ulster Tower.

 

Again, you may choose further sightseeing or a visit to the local museum, Somme 1916, beneath the centre of Albert.

 

 

 

 

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.
