Visiting the Western Front

Accommodation: I usually use gites (holiday cottages), but I have used hotels, B&Bs, and campsites. Here are some recommendations. the main enquiry site for gites. Good service. Highly recommended gite. Very rural. an inexpensive, but clean and welcoming hotel in Bapaume. a B&B near Hazebrouck. Run by an Englishman! Astonishlngly, you can actually stay in Talbot House, a haven for troops coming out of the terrible experiences of holding the line at Ypres. 


Albert, Somme A personal favourite. Underground museum.

Arras Former underground quarries used by Britsh and Commonwealth troops as a base.

Bullecourt Excellent museum founded by a local couple, M. et Mme. Letaille. Check opening times before you visit.

Poperinghe (Ypres Salient):  Talbot House was an oasis of peace just behind the lines. Must see if you are in Ypres.
