The trip in late May and early June 2010 will be eight days, seven nights by coach from Lancashire. It will go via the overnight ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge (cabin included) and spend three nights in Arras and two nights in Ypres.
With a “Trenches & Tunnels” theme, there will be visits to the Somme battlefield including the Thiepval Memorial and the Accrington / Chorley Pals trenches at Serre plus memorials at Vimy Ridge, Arras, Loos and the Menin Gate in Ypres. There will be guided tours around the Somme and Ypres Salient as well as visits to the tunnels at Arras, Vimy Ridge and Zonnebeke Chateau (near Passchendaele) + the trenches at Beaumont Hamel on the Somme and the Yorkshire Trench on the Ypres Salient.
Fully escorted throughout, the trip costs £499 per person in 3 * hotels on B&B basis plus cabins on the overnight ferry (both ways) and entrance to a number of museums; there are a number of single rooms available at a cost of £639.
At the start of 2010 the trip is two-thirds full with single rooms almost sold out.
