Presentation

Only an hour from Calais by car, Arras is a fascinating place to base yourself for an enriching weekend of WW1 discovery and cultural exploration.
The unrivalled atmosphere of its famous squares, the imposing dimensions of its prestigious abbey or the Vauban Citadel, the eclecticism of its heritage and the solemnity of its remembrance sites come together to form a unique and memorable French experience.
We have designed an exclusive discovery of the 1917 Battle of Arras and the network of underground tunnels dug to surprise the enemy. Start by arriving at the 4-star Univers hotel in the heart of Arras, walking distance to the main square, restaurants and shops. Then, enjoy an exclusive tour with a passionate, bilingual guide, who will collect you at your hotel and accompany you to the Wellington Tunnels. Here, your guide will plunge you into the history of the Great War, the Battle of Arras and the tragic events that took place here. You will follow the story through the city and up to the Wellington Tunnels through the emotional discovery of the soldiers’ life before the assault. Then, enter the dark, dank tunnels which during the war housed Canteens, chapels, power stations, a light railway and a hospital and 25,000 thousand Allied soldiers.

After this poignant WW1 discovery, your weekend takes a more light hearted and gourmet twist. Discover this modern French town, and its convivial inhabitants, strolling the quiet laneways and enjoying a drink in the main square at the foot of the UNESCO Belfry. Then, visit BiBoViNo for a personalised wine and cheese degustation.
