The Lille Tourist Office takes you to discover the sites full of emotion of the Great War in the Weppes: today green, this territory was the theater of battles among the most deadly of the Western front. Guided tour in a personal minivan of 6 places with a guide speaker.

On July 19th and 20th 1916, Fromelles became the theatre of a bloody battle in which British and Australian troops were defeated against the German 6th Army. This battle remains famous today as it was responsible for one of the greatest losses in Australian lives in less than 24 hours. Nowadays, many monuments and venues around Fromelles still commemorate the many lives which were lost on those terrible days, on both sides.

The 3.30h tour will take you to the Le Trou Aid Post Cemetery, the V.C. Corner Australian Cemetery, the "Cobbers" Memorial Park and the Pheasant Wood Cemetery, which was inaugurated in 2010.

The highlight of your tour will be the Museum of the Battle of Fromelles, which opened in July 2014. Rather small and intimate, it is the perfect place for a moment full of emotion, as you are taken back to July 1916 through the faces and lives of soldiers who fought for freedom.
