Join us in the Western Front for ANZAC Day in 2014 to commemorate the brave Commonwealth soldiers who fell in the Western Front in Belgium and France as well as remembering those who fell in Gallipoli in Turkey. This region of Belgium and France is arguably the most important and heavily fought area in World War I, where an estimated million young men lost their lives, including 500,000 of those who died in 1917 at Passchendaele, where the ANZACs suffered their greatest losses. The Western Front has a staggering number of Commonwealth Cemeteries - over 800, and is also home to the largest Commonwealth Cemetery anywhere in the world, Tyne Cot.
On The Go's Western Front tours offer a fantastic combination of history, ANZAC memorial services, New Zealand and Australian war cemeteries and visits to the battlegrounds with professional local tour guides and war historians.
Both our two 4 day Western Front Anzac Day tours visit the Somme in France, Ypres in Belgium and the many surrounding battlefields as well as being present for the moving Dawn Service at the Polygon Wood Cemetery. Travel by coach and ferry over to the continent or for a small supplement upgrade to our Eurostar option for a shorter more comfortable journey.
