On the Tracks of the Battle of Arras

After your tour down the Wellington quarry, deep inside the soldiers’life, and the showing of the film about the Battle of Arras, go to discover the battlefields of this great diversion offensive led by the British troops.

Launched on 9th April 1915 at 5.30 a.m., the Battle of Arras took place along 20 km of frontline on both sides of the city. The Canadian memorial of Vimy, the Caribou in Monchy- le-Preux, the memorial of the Battle of Arras, but also the German cemetery in Saint-Laurent-Blangy, are some of the emblematic sites of what has been, more than the only allied victory of the year 1917, the most murderous British battle of the First World War.

The Artois battlefields

The First World War has deeply scarred the countryside and men. In Artois, many cemeteries and memorials remind of these battles and render homage to the soldiers who fought them. You will discover two major sites where bloody battles took place.

The Canadian National Commemorative Park at Vimy still has many scars: trenches, mine craters... The memorial, charged with emotion, overlooks the plain of Gohelle and Lens.

The French National Cemetery of 40,000 soldiers, together with the Lantern Tower and the Basilica, are to be found on the site of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, called the bleeding hillside.
