Flanders & The Western Front


From 1914 to 1918 Flanders in Belgium was a major battle scene. Ypres was an important town in this region and had to be protected due to its links for crossing the channel. So, it became a focal point for many battles where thousands died. But our intrigue with Flanders Fields, as it became known, and its battles draws visitors back year after year. Join us to visit this beautiful but sacred place, to reflect on history and savor the beauty and peace of this monumental treasure.
