Standard four wheel drive vehicles guided battlefield tours
Battlefieldsby4x4 offers owners of standard four wheel drive vehicles guided tours that are designed to enable small groups to visit battlefields, iconic cemeteries and memorials, and access some of the European battlefields of the First and Second World Wars.There are many tours that can offer a very good “battlefield experience” from a coach or minibus, but there is only one that can offer guided tours with commentary to your own vehicle, access across the land that was fought over, quiet lanes and an alternative to the typical tourist routes.Whatever you drive and whatever your previous experience of driving might be, we can lead, advise, help and allow you to relax and experience the beauty of France as no other tour can. Generally our Tours are run over three days, with two half days and one full day of driving. This allows you time to travel from England for a long weekend. Alternatively our customers have added the Tour to the beginning or to the end of a break elsewhere in France. This has given them the opportunity to relax a little at the end of their travels, with only an hour-and-a-half to the ferries, or it has allowed them to break their outward journey and experience the tranquillity of northern France.
Who we are...
Battlefieldsby4x4 has evolved through the friendship and interests of Nick, Carl and Nigel who between them spent over 40 years living on the European battlefields and have over 50 years of experience when it comes to four wheel drive vehicles. You will be met by at least one of us at the beginning of your Tour. Nigel and Carl both speak French so if your French is a little rusty don’t worry as there is always one person fluent in French on each Tour.Both Nick and Carl have achieved ‘Higher’ level qualifications in off-road driving from BORDA (British Off-Road Driving Association). Nigel is a Battlefield Guide and Enthusiast.
What We Offer….
Our primary objective is to offer you a memorable Tour, but the details of every group Tour changes according to your groups’ needs and abilities.

All vehicles will remain in contact all of the time - ask questions, request a tea break, chat to your friends. Each vehicle will also be given an information pack that includes a bound A5 photo booklet (that you keep as a memento). This contains a series of photographs pertinent to the route of the Tour as well as additional reading pages.Below is a video taken on a recent tour that will give you an idea of what to expect:The cost of your Tour will include all campsite and electric fees and museum visits, and if your Tour is hotel based then it will include the hotel costs on a twin room, bed and breakfast basis.

Based in Albert, this three day tour will take you back to 1916, and beyond, visiting some of the most significant sites that were to influence the battle for the armies of both sides.
D Day - 1944
Made famous through films such as Saving Private Ryan, the D Day assaults are known to many. We follow the coast visiting sites where some of the 185,000 men disembarked and began their push inland to attack the bunkers and soldiers who were manning Hitler’sAtlantic Wall. Battlefieldsby4x4 run this four day tour once a year. Due to the travel restrictions that will be imposed for the 70th Anniversary ceremonies in 2014, and the number of visitors forecast for the region we have decided to cancel the Tour rather than compromise on quality.Keep an eye on the website for the 2015 dates

Arras - 1917
Starting on the strategic heights of Vimy Ridge we will visit defensive and offensive tunnels, the forgotten battlefields and villages that have long since been rebuilt following the brief but destructive fighting of the 1917 spring.
The Tank - 1917
It was during the 1917 Battle of Cambrai that over 470 British mark IV tanks famously went into action against the German defenses. From the historic town of Cambrai, we follow many of the tracks that those tanks took as they lumbered towards theirobjectives.
Undeterred by the atrocious weather we have been out planning new routes along the little known Opal Coast of northern France. A part of the near continent that was at various times under English rule, and Roman, and German. It provides lots of lanes that are within easy reach of the UK and Channel connections, as well as lots of history…..

“We are now home and I'm trying to find the words to describe the trip - truly amazing, awesome, fun, emotional, overwhelming, wonderful and mind blowing really does not say it all ..... the most amazing guided tour we have ever had.”Amanda – Dorking – Somme Tour June 2013“A truly amazing weekend. Thanks so much for arranging this tour and showing us the outstanding sites. Also for the efforts of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission for preserving the memory of soldiers fallen, sacrifices they made for us and showing the scale of what happened during the conflicts.” Ross - June 2013 “There were plenty of laughs and even some weeps.A great experience... as this was our first camping trip abroad which gave us more insight for future adventures.”Vicki - June 2013“We all had a wonderful time with lots of sorrow and lots of laning. This part of France is amazing and this type of trip is certainly something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.”Mr G - Surrey - Somme Tour June 2013“WOW! We've just got home from a fantastic weekend. As Carl said we now know more about what the Commonwealth War Graves Commission do. A huge thanks goes to Nigel who made a fantastic job of providing an almost non stop commentary that was obviously delivered by someone with a real passion for the subject.”Rick – Andover – Somme Tour September 2013

How fast will you be driving?
Most modern vehicles are quite capable of travelling at 60 or 70 miles per hour, but once you arrive the lanes and tracks that we use do not allow us to travel at any great speed, and if we did drive too fast you would miss out on something. We will always accommodate the slowest in the group – we have even been overtaken by bicycles! If we use roads then they will be subject to the national speed limits, but again, we will always accommodate the slowest vehicle.
Do I need a modified 4x4?
No – all of our tours are accessible with most makes and models of 4x4 vehicles. If you are unsure about your vehicles’ suitability please contact us

Please call us to advise of an amended meeting point
Do I need to buy a Sat Nav?
Not necessarily - We will give clear directions to the start and point you in the right direction for your onward journey after the tour. However if you already have a sat nav with European maps this may be useful for you.
What will the weather be like at that time of year?
We wish that we could predict this! Generally the summers are hotter (and dusty) while spring and autumn can be quite wet (and muddy). As a precaution sun cream and waterproofs should always be on your list. Prior to leaving you can access a reliable five day forecast here, simply type in the name of the town and “Get Forecast”http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/albert
Will I be able to drive on all of the tracks that you use?
On all of our Tours we have drivers and vehicles with varying abilities. Therefore we will always have an alternative route that can be taken. You will never be encouraged to or have to follow a route if you do not feel happy doing so.
Can you provide camping equipment for us?
Unfortunately we cannot do this, but we would never leave you sitting on the grass! There is usually a spare camp chair around…
Is it true that we have to have fluorescent tabards with us at all times?
It is a requirement that all vehicles must have one for the driver, but in the event of an incident and for your own safety we would recommend one per occupant of your car. After all they take up no space and cost just a couple of pounds. Also, see our link to the AA website which details the other items that you must carry.

Cost Includes Vehicle, Driver and One Passenger. Extra Adults £75 each, Children 5-15 £35, Under 5s free
In her 1983 publication Somme, Lyn Macdonald wrote: “It was the Romans who first built the long straight road from Amiens through Albert to Bapaume .... Now the motorway speeds down from Calais …. At motorway speeds it takes, at most, twelve minutes to cover the twenty-five kilometres from the exit at Bapaume….” Instead of twelve minutes we will spend three days guiding you across this same land where you will see the same lanes that once linked these towns that were well known to soldiers of the first war (and possibly Rome).The Battle of The Somme was designed to act as a diversion in order to ease the pressure on the beleaguered French army further east. It opened on the morning on July 1st 1916 with the detonation of a series of underground mines, along a front that was less than 15 miles long. These explosions signalled the start of five months of bloody and muddy attrition across a relatively small area of Picardie in northern France.Battlefieldsby4x4 offer a guided tour starting from the historical town of Albert, and over three days aims to show you the seldom seen views of this famous battlefield. We will visit the Lochnagar Crater, caused by the detonation of 28 tons of high explosive, all that the remains of one of the mines that exploded at 7.28am on that fateful day. We travel on tracks once trod by infantry as they advanced to their jumping off points in the attack that saw the Tank go into action for the very first time. German bunkers can be entered on the outskirts of villages that were occupied, fought over and liberated but in the process were completely destroyed. There are many poignant reminders of the loss of life, such as the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing which contains the names of almost 72,000 British and South African soldiers who have no known grave. While you visit these emotional sites there will be visitors who have arrived on buses and other tours; however we will rarely come across other vehicles on the lanes that we use to cross the Battlefield. We start the tour with a visit to the tunnels beneath the Basilica of the town that were used as a refuge by the civilians who remained throughout the fighting, but now house a museum.This tour is based in the town of Albert, a place in which the soldiers of 1916 were billeted just behind the lines. We use the spacious and well appointed campsite with electric hook up available for all pitches. Close at hand are bars, restaurants, petrol stations, and supermarkets for all of your needs. If you prefer a hotel, then please arrange your own accommodation - some suggestions are available on the Somme Tourist website. Let us know when you pay the balance and we will deduct the cost of camping. On the first evening there is the option of a group meal, where you can relax after your journey and get to know each other over four delicious, typically French courses in a local restaurant. Close at hand are bars, restaurants, petrol stations, and supermarkets for all of your needs. During the last day of the Tour we will travel north over land that saw intense, and for some, very brief fighting as we head towards the famous town of Arras. The Tour ends in Arras, in time for lunch, where you are free to take in the splendour of this centuries old market town before your return or onward travel with only 10 minutes to the nearest motorway Example Itinerary: Friday - Independent travel to the agreed meeting point (details confirmed in advance of departure date)14h00Arrival at meeting point, Introductions, explanations, questions, distribution of Tour material, set up camp/check in at hotel.15h45 to 17h00Guided visit to Tunnel Museum below the town of Albert17h15 to 18h30Short trip along some local lanes19h30 to 23h00Optional evening meal (short drive from campsite) or free eveningSaturday09h00Depart local supermarketDuring the day we will travel at a pace to suit all, visiting cemeteries and sites such as Sausage Valley, Lochnagar Crater, Mametz Wood, Delville Wood, High Wood, Caterpillar Valley, the Thiepval Memorial, German bunkers, front line positions, with a stop for lunch at a suitable spot.17h30 to 18h30Return to campsite, the evening is free for you to spend as you wishSunday09h30Depart local supermarket We will travel north towards Arras, up the Ancre Valley, Newfoundland Park, Hawthorn Ridge and the Sunken Lane, the battlefield around Serre, trenches and front line jumping off points, and cemeteries just 100 meters beyond13h00 to 13h30Approximate arrival in the centre of Arras 14h00Farewell(Non-contractual Tour example, subject to alteration when necessary – All times are local)For more information and to see what is included or not included in each tour, click hereNow booking for the following dates:
Tour Over Three Days (One full day and two half days) - £299
Cost Includes Vehicle, Driver and One Passenger. Extra Adults £75 each, Children 5-15 £35, Under 5s free
Battlefieldsby4x4 offer a guided tour starting from Vimy Ridge. Over three days we aim to show you the seldom seen views of this famous battlefield. As many cars speed south down the motorway The Battle of Arras is often overlooked, but in the spring of 1917 it had a daily death rate higher than that in the Somme nine months earlier. We will guide you from the heights and tunnels of Vimy ridge south to Arras, and then out over the Artois plains (from where the grain for a famous lager originate) crossing the German defensive positions of the Hindenberg Line and beyond to the Canal du Nord that was originally planned during the 19th century, but had become a strategic artery and target during the first war.From our start on the heights of Vimy Ridge you will become aware of its strategic significance, and have a guided visit of the tunnels used by the soldiers prior to the attack on the 9th of April 1917. The Tour will then head south over the land that had been previously held by French, German and British soldiers. We will visit the immense Maison Blanche German Cemetery containing almost 45,000 burials. The Scarpe valley and the canal system within it saw intense fighting as the British armies advanced towards the small town of Monchy le Preux that had been fortified by the German armies. The British success in taking this key point overlooking the Plain of Douai came at great cost. We will pass numerous small battlefield cemeteries such as Happy Valley which was quite the opposite in the heat of battle. Further south we visit a German bunker system that directed machine gun fire onto the advancing Commonwealth troops. We see the footprints left one hundred years ago by labourers as they constructed these sections of the immense Hindenburg Line. While we cannot assure you of good weather, we will be traveling in the comfort of heated vehicles, whilst almost 100 years previously the soldiers had been advancing on foot and in the depths of late winter snow storms.The last day of the Tour will see us travel to thefamous town of Arras. We will end here, in time for lunch, where you are free to take in the splendour of this centuries old market town before your return or onward travel with only 10 minutes to the nearest motorway.Battlefieldsby4x4 use a comfortable campsite just 15 minutes drive from the centre of Arras, with electric hook up available for all pitches. There is an on site restaurant, and in the high season an outdoor heated swimming pool. If you would prefer not to camp, there is the possibility of renting modern mobile homes that can sleep 4, 6 or 8 people. If you prefer a hotel, then please arrange your own accommodation - some suggestions are available on the Explore Arras website. Let us know when you pay the balance and we will deduct the cost of camping.

Battlefieldsby4x4 offer a guided tour starting from Cambrai. Over three days we will travel through the lanes and villages that were in the forefront of the largest tank action that had ever taken place. Although first used in action just north of the Somme battlefields, in September 1916 where a Captain of the KSLI described as “A new engine of War, a petrol-driven armoured car, termed the Tank” it was in the 1917 Battle of Cambrai that over 470 British mark IV tanks went into action. From the historic town of Cambrai, which had surrendered to the British after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, we follow some of the tracks that those tanks took as they lumbered towards their objectives.This is a twice yearly tour that is based from the family run, sumptuous three star Beatus Hotel in Cambrai. The pricing for these tours is based on one car with two occupants sharing a twin room on bed and breakfast basis. Packed lunches can be provided on request or alternatively we can stop at a local supermarket in order to stock up on picnic provisions. www.beatus-cambrai.comFrom the hotel we will follow the tracks from the railway unloading depots, past and through woods that retain the original trench lines of the preceding battles. The traces of their machine gun fire can still be seen in the buildings that have since been repaired and put back into use. En route we visit some of the immaculately maintained cemeteries of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, that contain the graves of the infantry and of many of the crews that manned these tanks as they moved forward at 4 mph to attack the defenses of the Hindenburg Line. In the space of just seventeen days, and over a small area of the countryside the losses on both sides were considerable, figures that we struggle to comprehend today - The British had 44,000 casualties including more than 20,000 wounded and 7,048 missing. The Germans captured 9,000 prisoners, 165 guns, 600 machine guns and more than 90 tanks, but in doing so sustained 41,000 casualties including 11,000 prisoners with 145 guns and 456 machine guns that fell into British hands. The already weakened bridge crossing the Canal du Nord at Masnieres was attempted in a tank almost a century ago, with catastrophic consequences for the bridge. Luckily today the replacement is standing firm. We will cross the canal in the footsteps of the Canadian Divisions. The Tour will be treated to a short film in the Hotel, and a talk from the patron Philippe Gorczynski who was responsible for researching, finding and excavating “Deborah” D51 the WW1 tank that is now displayed not far from Cambrai and that is visited during the Tour
