Fromelles and Ypres Day Tour from Arras
Visit Fromelles and Ypres, and delve into Europe’s World War I history on this day tour from Arras. Explore famous WWI battle sites including Aubers Ridge, Messines Ridge, and Ploegsteert Wood with a guide, and discover underground dugouts at the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917. Stand before famous memorials including Cobbers’ Memorial and visit the Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery. Explore Ypres at your leisure, then take part in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate before your onward travel to Lille or return to Arras.

Begin your tour with a 9:30am pickup at your centrally located Arras hotel or Arras train station. Then, take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan for the onward journey to the WWI battle fields of Fromelles.

During your 12-hour tour, take in key sites of WWI interest including Aubers Ridge and Pheasant Wood, and visit the Fromelles Museum (subject to opening hours) before travelling to the battlefield itself.

Perhaps pay your respects at the famous Cobbers’ Memorial, then travel through the historic villages and towns of Flanders Fields — where Allied soldiers spent time between offensives. Cross the border into Belgium for lunch at Ploegsteert Wood, then see the memorials to the Christmas truce of 1914.

After lunch, head onward to Messines Ridge, the Spanbroekmolen Mine Crater Memorial, and Hill 60. Follow the path of the advance during the 3rd Battle of Ypres with your guide, and see reconstructed trenches and underground dugouts at the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917.

Visit the Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery and Memorial — the largest WW1 Commonwealth cemetery in the world — then enjoy free time to explore the historic town of Ypres at your leisure.

From here, perhaps head onward at 6pm to your centrally located hotel in Ypres to conclude your tour. Alternatively, attend the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate then leave Ypres at 8:30pm for Lille, or return to your centrally located hotel in Arras at approximately 9:45pm.
