Each Anglia tour to the battlefields of the Great War is led by an experienced battlefield guide, chosen not only for their historical knowledge, but more particularly for their ability to engage school groups.
Anglia Tours is committed to a policy of contributing to the sustainability of the areas we visit. We are conscious of the detrimental impact of too many visitors and seek, wherever possible, to minimise the damage this can cause.
In addition to our regular programme, at certain times during the period 2014-18, we are offering tours which focus on key events and themes which took place one hundred years before.
In the footsteps of...
As a major part of Anglia’s commitment to the Great War Centenary, between September 2014 and November 2018, you can follow the journey of a particular unit or individual through the Great War.
One of the most exciting features of Anglia’s Great War Centenary programme is the unique set of Education Programmes we are running in conjunction with our partners at The National Archives.
The National Archives is the guardian of the official record of the First World War. We offer teachers and students an unrivalled opportunity to investigate every aspect of the conflict using original sources. Our classroom materials, live interactive sessions and online research facilities will inspire and support your students in their pursuit of original historical enquiries, whilst our professional development programme will enable teachers to maximise the value of using primary sources and battlefield locations.
Anglia Tours is strongly recommended by WFA Education as a key provider for UK Schools’ WW1 Battlefield Tours
Anglia is proud to be a Guild Partner of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides
