NEW About the tour: War Graves Pilgrimage


Tour Introduction

Is there a particular war grave you wish to visit? With more than 2,000 British and Commonwealth cemeteries along the Western Front, it’s not possible to visit them all on our standard tours. However, this unique tour allows you to request a cemetery in Northern France and if a visit is possible, it is guaranteed you will be able to spend time at a relative’s grave. The cemeteries covered are all in the Nord and Pas de Calais regions of Northern France, where there are nearly 1,000 British cemeteries from the First World War. Simply contact our Reservations team who will confirm whether the cemetery you wish to visit can be included on this tour, as some cemeteries are located in remote areas of the battlefield.
