Tailor-make your own tour 

 

A battlefield tour with Back-Roads Touring Co. Ltd is a rich historical journey. You know the names; Ypres, Passchendaele, Vimy Ridge, Amiens, Pozieres, Fromelles, The Somme, Delville Wood, Dieppe, Juno, Utah, Omaha, Dunkirk... The lands of Flanders and Normandy are littered with physical reminders: bunkers, trenches, interactive museums, rocket launching sites, memorials and cemeteries.

Back-Roads offer tailor-made and private battlefield tours to where some of the most significant events in modern military history took place. We take you on a living history lesson to the frontline to listen to chilling stories of bravery and loss as you travel through the sites which marked the bloody battles from World War I and II.

Back-Roads have a comfortable fleet of mini-coaches and smaller private vehicles and can carry up to 16-passengers. We feel this provides a fantastic opportunity for friends or family members to explore the battefields in a relaxing environment at a reasonable price. Multi-generational families, military personnel (current and former), friends and community groups from around the world have joined Back-Roads on a private tour, and all have loved this opportunity of customising their travel itinerary. Our dedicated battlefield team will ensure that your bespoke battlefield tour is everything you would hope to expect from this type of historical journey. From a day trip to a weeklong expedition or more, we can produce an on-demand tour that fits in with your exact requirements, all year round.


Your guide is usually the difference between a good and great tour. We believe our guides are some of the best in the industry and all have been working with Back-Roads for several years and have an excellent reputation and positive feedback from guests. All Back-Roads battlefield guides are members of the 'Guild of Battlefield Guides' and possess a real passion for the subject matter. If you have a personal story to uncover, they will work with you to research the events surrounding a particular, or series of battles and will make them come alive as you travel to the actual location where these took place. Our guides have access to records from the Wars and are able to help locate the grave or resting places of individuals killed in the region. Some of the most interesting stories come from our passengers, and it is a true privilege for our guides to be able to join your personal journey of discovery.

  

It is not just the inspirational stories of an individual that make these tours so powerful. Back-Roads' private bespoke battlefield tours for smaller groups will interest those with a avid or passing enthusiasm in the subjec. You will enjoy visiting the National Memorials and Cemeteries to pay homage to the collective efforts of the nations involved as World War I and II. Viewing the thousands of gravestones lined up, some unnamed, will send shivers through you. These event played such an important role in how our lives have been shaped and should never be forgotten.
