Trenches at Vimy

Arras – 1917

Tour Over Three Days (One full day and two half days) -

from £429 for your vehicle, driver and one passenger

The Battle of Arras is often overlooked, but at the end of 38 days of fighting in the spring of 1917, along a front stretching 20 kilometres from Vimy Ridge to the plain of Bullecourt, 300,000 personnel on both sides were listed as wounded, missing or dead. The British Army suffered an average of 4,000 wounded and killed every day - the highest average daily casualty rate of any British offensive on the Western Front. For many, their experiences at Arras were the most brutal of the war. Most visitors travel around the battlefields by car or bus; however, on our tours we rarely see other vehicles on the lanes we use to traverse the area.

Tour Highlights

Our tour starts near the historical market town of Arras; the frontline for much of

WW1.

Over three days we will give you an insight from a different perspective of this

famous battlefield, traveling in a small convoy of 5-6 vehicles, on tracks once trod by

infantry.

You’ll receive CB commentary as we drive along our route so you can really get a

sense of where troops came from and what their objectives were.
