On our World War 1 and Anglo-Zulu  Battlefields Tours, you can visit restored and recreated World War I trenches; trenches which marked the front line of fighting for some of the fiercest battles the world has ever witnessed. Our battlefields tours include Ypres, a city devastated by conflicts in the first half of the 20th century. No battlefields tour to Ypres would be complete without a visit to the Menin Gate to witness the Last Post Ceremony. Set in the Belgian region of Flanders, Ypres has been completely restored - a painstaking process which has returned the city to its pre-war state.
