Flanders and the Western Front
Staying at: Hotel & Aparthotel Alize Mouscron, Mouscron
Friday 15th - Monday 18th May 2020
Following a morning departure we travel to Dover for the short ferry crossing to Calais. On arrival we rejoin our coach and continue our journey passing Dunkerque and on into Belgium to Mouscron.
A day in Ypres, perhaps for a visit to the In Flanders Field Museum before meeting our guide. The guided walk through Ypres will include the Cloth Hall and the Menin Gate. There will then be free time this afternoon and you could enjoy dinner at one of the character restaurants around the main square. From the main square it is only a short walk to the Menin Gate for The Last Post Ceremony. Afterwards we return to our hotel.
We have a full day excursion today to the Somme. See the Historical Museum Peronne, the Lochnagar Crater, Thiepval Memorial and Newfoundland Park. We return to the hotel in time for dinner.
We make our way back toward Calais and visit Poperinge, one of only two towns not under German occupation. After a short visit we can make a stop at Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, site of the largest evacuation hospital along the Ypres Salient. Our ferry takes us back to Dover for our further onward journey arriving home in the evening.
