Step back in time and relive the history of the landing beaches and battlefields, in France and Belgium, of the two World Wars.
Today it is hard for us to imagine the scale of the wars in terms of human lives lost, however the vast number of memorials and museums serve as a poignant reminder to the bravery and suffering endured.
Today the entire region, which has become an open-air museum in itself, is punctuated with hundreds of memorials, war grave cemeteries, museums and trenches.
Visiting the region is extremely moving, it provides the opportunity to extend your knowledge of the two World Wars as well as enabling you to pay your respects to all that served and lost their lives.
Many people travel to the region to visit a special individual grave whilst others will take time to explore the whole area. Whatever your reason for wanting to visit the battlefields, we can assist with every aspect of your break: accommodation, transport, driving instructions. We offer accommodation in the towns listed below which are ideally situated for visiting the key sites of interest in the area. It is possible to combine stays in more than one of these towns or in other areas of Belgium and France to explore more of the regions and tailor-make your own touring holiday.
