Half Day Tour

         This is our traditional tour covering the main sites of the Somme Battlefields. The tour starts in Albert (in front of the Basilica with its Golden Virgin).


         From there we will head to Albert's underground museum "Musée Somme 1916" There you will see ammunition and uniforms dating from the First World War.


         We will then move on to the impressive Lochnagar crater, a huge mine which was blown at 7:28 am on the 1st of July 1916. Following this we will visit the Thiepval Memorial dedicated to the "Missing of the Somme" and the hill on which it stands.  We will wind up in the carefully preserved trenches at the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial.
