The Lille Tourist Office takes you to the emotionnaly-charged places and landmarks of the Great War in the region, in a minivan with 6 seats, with both guide and driver.

In Fromelles, you will visit the Museum of the Battle of Fromelles, where you will relive the deadly battle which took place on 19th and 20th July 1916. Through the different rooms of the museum, experience the atmosphere of the British, Australian and German trenches.
After visiting the museum, your guide will take you on site, to the war memorials and Commonwealth cemeteries, as the Australian Memorial Park and the VC Corner Cemetery. On the road to Ypres, you will stop at the 1914 Christmas Truce Memorial in Ploegsteert and at the Saint-Nicolas church in Messines, rebuilt in 1928. Its 11th century Norman crypt hosted a German field hospital during the war.
The tour finishes in Ypres, a city that was beautifully rebuilt after the war. Its monuments, such as Saint George’s Church, the Lakenhallen (former textile market building) and the Menin Gate, are heartbreaking testimonies to the huge destructions that struck the region during the Great War.
