UK First World War Tour – East Anglia

Tour Introduction

The Trenches are much closer than you think!

Let Anglia take your students to the Front Line without taking them abroad. This fully-guided tour, delivered in conjunction with our friends at Khaki Devil and the Great War Huts, has been designed specifically to enable your students to develop a deeper understanding of the events, experience and legacy of the First World War.

The tour includes:

  • A visit to restored, original First World War buildings – the ideal environment to learn about the period & with plenty of opportunities to try on the kit and handle the weapons
  • A chance to explore a large, reconstructed Trench System, originally built for film and television work, and used by productions as varied as the film adaptations of ‘Journey’s End’ and ‘Private Peaceful’
  • A guided tour of a local cemetery which contains a number of Commonwealth War Graves Commission burials from the First World War

The tour can cover themes including:

  • Recruitment and training of the British Army
  • How did uniforms and equipment develop during the war?
  • Trench construction and trench warfare
  • What was life really like for a soldier in the First World War?
  • Illness, injuries and treatment on the Western Front
  • The changing nature of warfare
  • The impact & legacy of the First World War
