The Battle of the Somme was one of the largest battles of the First World War, with more than one million casualties. So, what happened in the battle? What were the mistakes? How did it end?
A fantastic tour packed full with historical interest. Its short distance from the UK, coupled with the proximity of the major sights within the region, allows schools to fully appreciate the region in a 2-3 day visit, making this trip great value for money. A full day tour of the Somme battlefields with an English speaking guide and the museum will bring to life what has been learnt in the classroom. This visit can be combined with leisure activities such as a town treasure hunt and bowling. A must for students of History.
