The itinerary for your journey
Tour highlights
Day 1 - To Brussels on the Eurostar
Eurostar

You'll depart London St Pancras by Eurostar to Brussels. On arrival, why not begin your tour of the city by taking in some of the city's must-see attractions, including the awe-inspiring Grand Place - a treasure trove of architectural splendour.

Day 2 - Brussels to Ypres
Ypres Cemerery

Although flattened by bombardment during World War I, the centre of Ypres has since been restored, allowing you to admire its beautiful Medieval architecture. Of course, for many, a visit to Ypres means paying tribute to those who died during the Great War and there are many museums and memorials throughout Ypres that remember the fallen.

Day 3 - Ypres
Menin Gate

An excursion (included with this tour) today takes you to Flanders Fields, visiting important sites including Hill 60, the Bayernwald trench complex, Bedford House and the Commonwealth cemetery. End today at the Menin Gate for the moving 'Last Post' ceremony which commemorates fallen Commonwealth soldiers.

Day 4 - Ypres to Lille
Lille

Packed with interesting architecture and history, Lille is a delightful place to explore. Perhaps take a stroll through the old quarter with its cobblestone streets and exclusive shops or visit Lille's attractive Cathedral.

Day 5 - Lille to London
Eurostar

There's just time for some last minute sightseeing in Lille before taking the Eurostar service back to London.

Trains
Eurostar
Eurostar

The high speed Eurostar trains link St Pancras International in London with Paris and Lille in France as well as Brussels in Belgium.

Eurostar's Standard Class coaches feature two seats on either side of the central aisle, most of which is arranged in an 'airline' seating configuration with drop down tray tables. There are two tables for four per carriage. Passengers travelling in Eurostar Standard Class coaches can take advantage of the Bar-Buffet which sells a range of snacks, meals, hot and cold drinks - including Champagne!

The highest class of Eurostar travel available for leisure customers is Standard Premier Class. In your dedicated Standard Premier carriage you'll find a less dense seat configuration, meaning the seats are larger and you have ample space to relax and stretch out. As part of the service you'll enjoy complimentary drinks and refreshments, served at your seat by friendly, helpful waiting staff.

For the class of travel used on your chosen tour, please refer to the 'What's Included' section of the tour page.
