Battlefield Tours 2024/2025
Pay your respects to the fallen heroes of World War I and II on a Rail Battlefields Tour. Our superb battlefields tours take you to visit some of the most moving memorials and museums across Europe, including the region of Flanders which has some of the most poignant cemeteries and former military hospitals. Our Battlefields of Flanders tour is escorted by a professional Tour Manager with specialist battlefields knowledge.
On our World War 1 and Anglo-Zulu Battlefields Tours, you can visit restored and recreated World War I trenches; trenches which marked the front line of fighting for some of the fiercest battles the world has ever witnessed. Our battlefields tours include Ypres, a city devastated by conflicts in the first half of the 20th century. No battlefields tour to Ypres would be complete without a visit to the Menin Gate to witness the Last Post Ceremony. Set in the Belgian region of Flanders, Ypres has been completely restored - a painstaking process which has returned the city to its pre-war state.
