Battlefield Tours

Our verdict:

You don't have to be a military history buff to be interested in visiting historic battlefield sites. Over 100 years since the start of the First World War, you can join a group tour of memorials and cemeteries, as well as battle sites, accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. It's a truly moving experience for all ages.

TourHound says

If you want to understand our nation’s – and your family’s – history, there is no better way than to visit the battlefield sites and the places where history was made. The best way to retrace the footsteps of heroes on a World War Battlefield Tour is in the company of a specialist guide and people with a shared interest.

Battlefield tours are not just confined to the First and Second World Wars. There is a vast range of options including the Cold War (with tours to Ukraine), the USA Civil War and the Battle of Waterloo.

Our selection of battlefield tours, from a choice of operators, includes a wide choice of short breaks of up to four nights as well as longer holidays. Some are focused entirely on the very moving and poignant history whilst others combine visits to specific battlefield sites with other activities such as Christmas markets and even Belgian breweries.
