City of Ypres-Tijl Capoen

World War I



Most British groups who visit the Battlefields of the Great War go to the sites around Ypres and on the Somme and this is where we concentrate  our tours.  If you wish to visit other important sites such as Verdun or even Gallipoli, please let us know - we can help.  Wherever you go, if you have specific cemeteries or other sites with family or community connections, we can arrange to include these in your programme provided we know in advance.
