Battlefields - Overview
A Journey of Remembrance and Discovery - An experience you will never forget. Visiting battlefields from any conflict is both a fascinating and moving experience. Soldiers who fought those wars left behind a legacy; their name on a war memorial, an experience passed down to the family or a faded photograph in a frame.
How do we understand the significance of that legacy and how do we understand what the battlefields mean to us now? These are all questions we regularly ask on Leger Battlefield Tours and they are at the heart of what we do: myself and my team of Specialist Battlefield Guides are there to help you decipher that legacy, and understand a past that touched us all; whether it relates to musket smoke at Waterloo, the trenches on the Somme, the sandy beaches of Normandy or the concrete walls that once surrounded Berlin.
Join us as we Remember and ensure that the legacy is never forgotten.
