One of the most popular ways to visit the key WWI battlefields in France is with an organised coach tour. With the know-how and expertise of guides and drivers it is possible to see more than you might if you travel alone…
Most coach tour operators feature WW1 battlefield tours and while some may already have run trips in 2014, they will certainly be featuring the Great War in their 2015 tour programmes and for the years following. The leading specialist with the biggest choice of tours is Leger Holidays who along with Shearings Holidays offer nationwide departures from the UK to WW1 battlefields and there are many smaller operators. Trips can be with large of small groups, set visit points or individually tailored and suitable for different budgets.
Prices start from under £200 to over £500, may include all meals or not, you’ll find a huge choice for travellers who wish to travel to key WW! sites by coach in France.
WW1 sites in France by coach cover extensive areas and all the key areas of The Great War battlefields from Mons, Belgium, scene of the first and last shots of WWI in Europe, through Nord-Pas de Calais and Picardy and the Somme.
