ARRAS BATTLEFIELD TOUR OF ARRAS & VIMY RIDGE

at the start of your Arras battlefield tour on the Eurostar to Lille, France. Additionally, your chauffeur guide will collect you from Lille and drive you to Arras and the surrounding areas.

 

Without delay you will discover on your Arras battlefield tour

that 20 metres below the pavements are the Wellington Quarry Tunnels and museum created by commonwealth tunnelers.

As a result, the commonwealth tunnelers connected up chalk extraction tunnels. To summarize, this was to create a network of underground barracks large enough to accommodate 24,000 soldiers.

Furthermore, these soldiers engaged the enemy on the 9th April 1917.

Later this morning we then spend time visiting the battlefields around Arras (Bullecourt). Then we go to pay our respects at the Arras Memorial to the Missing.

After this, in the afternoon we head for Vimy Ridge’s Hill 145

this being the highest point of the 14 km Vimy Ridge, one of the most poignant parts of the Arras battlefield tour.

Furthermore, at Vimy Ridge we visit the breathtaking National Memorial. Notably the memorial took 11 years to build and offers views of the surrounding battle scarred landscape. After, at the visitors center one can experience preserved trenches and take a guided tour of the underground tunnels.

All in all, we then finish our Arras battlefield tour and being our journey back to London on Eurostar.
