School WW1 Battlefield Tour to Ypres and the Somme

School WW1 Battlefield Tour to Ypres and the Somme

A history school trip to Ypres and the Somme will give your students the opportunity to experience the living conditions in the trenches for themselves!

By putting themselves in the soldiers’ shoes in the battlefields of the Ypres Salient and the Somme, they’ll better understand the destructive power, waste and futility of war.

The events of the 1916 Battle of the Somme will be brought to life for them as you follow the Circuit of Remembrance, taking part in the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate. Other highlights include the interactive In Flanders Fields museum, and the British Dugout Experience and German trench system at the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917.
