This was such an informative and moving experience and one not to miss when in Arras. To walk the tunnels dug and used by thousands of allied troops to surprise the Germans in 1917, to share some of that experience with those poor lads to see the things they left behind, was a privellage. The guides were very informative and... More

The venue has been expertly prepared for visitors of all abilities. Visits are in guided groups only followed by a short film. Visitors are required to wear hard hats (replica WW1 tin hats) and also receivers that pick up information as you walk round the tunnels. The guides are multi-lingual and ours spoke perfect English. The trip was most interesting... More

Came after Vimy and was anticlimax. Was interesting but slow due to repeating everything in French and not as big and inspiring as had expected from other reviews

Visiting times are separated by at least two hours and is a one hour guided tour and Staff was very helpful. Well worth a stop on the way to Paris. Children loved the history as it put meat on the bone for the history of WW1.

We were in Arras for a few days to follow the route of Grandad from his arrival in France in 1917 to Arras where he was ultimately injured on April 23rd. This injury probably saved his life as he had to be returned home to recuperate. What a regret that he never spoke of his time in Arras and we... More

My grandfather was here in 1916 /1917. It is eerie to visit where he was quartered before he fought in the great Battle of Arras and Vimy Ridge.

Normally I do a lot of research and planning before going away, but for this trip as it was a visit to my great uncles grave, I decided to just wait and decide at the time. Having picked up a leaflet at the hotel this location was a no brainer and so worth the trip. There cannot be many places... More

The entrance slopes down towards the visitors area for a trip beneath the city where Commonwealth troops planned a network to surprise the Germans. Your experience starts with a dough boy helmet to give you a sense of the time and headphones to listen through the tour. A guide walks you through the tunnel network stopping at locations to see...
