Battlefield Walks

Tour Introduction

To meet an ever growing demand to include a more active component in our standard battlefield tours, Anglia has developed a series of battlefield walks. Each of these comprises a planned walk over battlefield terrain, with stops carefully selected to cover thematic or narrative components, chosen for their relevance to curriculum needs or the ground you are covering.

Whether it be the Redan and Hawthorn Ridges on the Somme, where so many died in tragic circumstances on 1st July 1916, Bazentin Ridge, where the British Army demonstrated the dramatic progress made just two weeks later, or the Passchendaele Memorial Walk from Zonnebeke to Tyne Cot, following the route taken by the ANZACS in October 1917, these walks allow your
students to stretch their legs whilst exploring the ground in more detail than a traditional coach-based tour can allow.
