The battles which took place in Flanders and the Somme from 1914 to 1918 were on a massive scale and left countless thousands dead. Our tour is based near Ypres, perhaps the war’s most famous site, and is well placed for touring Flanders and The Somme.
The Novotel leper Centrum is a modern hotel located in the centre of Ypres close to the Menin Gate, Cloth Hall and the Market Place, where there are a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. All bedrooms are ensuite with TV and free wi-fi. The hotel’s facilities include a fitness centre and sauna, restaurant, bar and terrace.
