Description

It is believed that the death of his friend Alexis Helmer inspired John McCrae's WWI poem "In Flanders Fields" in 1915. This poetic day trip from Brussels includes lunch, dinner and a visit to the place where McCrae wrote it, Essex Farm Cemetery - and many other places dedicated to the fallen of World War I.

Flanders Fields was an important battlefield in the First World War, from 1914 to 1918, and at Essex Farm Cemetery your guide will take you back in time, across the trenches and the memorial statue to the Canadian resistance during the German gas attack of 1915

After lunch, visit the world's largest Commonwealth cemetery, Tyne Cot Cemetery, and Hill 60 or Hill 62 - memorials with Canadian maple trees. See the crater floor and old German bunkers and enjoy stories of trench warfare at In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres

After dinner, the missing British soldiers and officers will be paid tribute at the Menintor before being transported back to Brussels. It is a thoughtful, often heartbreaking day that should put everything else in perspective.
