#1 of 6 Sights & Landmarks in Ablain-Saint-Nazaire
A peaceful site overlooking the countryside with 40,000+ graves of French casualties from WW1 with a beautiful chapel in the centre.
... provides an unparalleled view over what were among the bloodiest battlefields of WWI, but it is also suffused with that sense of peace and tranquility which can be found on so many of these commemorative sites.

It is a new feature near Notre Dame de Lorette which is an important stop on a visit to the WW1 sites around Vimy.
All people who have an interest in the Great War, this is a MUST visit site.

The centre gives an excellent overview of WWI and the effects of the war: on the Somme/Flanders areas; the battle sites; trench warfare; and the French people.
I would say this museum gives probably the best overall view of the Great War of all the ones we've visited in Belgium and northern France.

The memorial includes a large heavily cratered battlefield, trenches and tunnels, museum, commonwealth cemetery and the magnificent memorial on the edge of the ridge with an impressive view of the lands beyond.
I was very impressed with my visit to Vimy Ridge, The signposting to the site was excellent, the parking was easy and free, The views of the monument and the preserved now wooded trenches were brilliant.

Amazing Abbaye with cemetery and great views.
The view of the church from the road below the village (D49) is also very nice.

#1 of 5 Sights & Landmarks in Neuville-Saint-Vaast
This cemetery is a very sombre and moving site; each grave identifies four Germans (mass graves for German soldiers were common).
This site contains the last remains of almost 45,000 German casualties of WW1, brought together here from many cemeteries in the area when the French demanded the return of the land where these other burial sites...

#1 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Thanks to the excellent CWG Commission web site easily located the correct stone and spent some time looking around the very peaceful and moving memorial and cemetery.
Like all Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites, it is well tended and it is easy to locate the grave (if one exists) or the name engraved on the memorial wall of the person you want to remember.
Place des Heros Arras 12.4 km away
#2 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
From the Place, you have lovely view of the gothic and unique Hotel de Ville.
While we were in Arras as a stop over to see Vimy we took time to wander around and take in this site.
Lichfield Crater Arras 6.3 km away
#14 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
It was worth straying off the standard beaten path and while ok in summer or a dry winter I would advise not visiting when its muddy and wet just in getting to road and to site could be difficult.
Zivy Crater Arras 7.0 km away
#12 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
we made a road trip from Paris to Vimy, and along the way stopped at multiple craters and war sites.
Note: If you are traveling from Neuville-Saint-Vaast to Thelus, along the D49, take the turn-off to a construction site on your right, before you go over the bridge crossing the A26/E15.

Le Beffroi d'Arras Arras 12.4 km away
#5 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
This building is absolutely stunning in architecture, you can take in the underground tour and then take the lift to the top where you can take on the sights over the whole of Arras... Well worth a visit..!
Wonderful view from the clock tower, good photo opportunity, being able to look down upon the square and surrounding area makes you realise how big Arras is.
Grand Place Arras 12.4 km away
#6 of 20 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Lovely architecture, great shops bars and restaurants, also close the Somme sights for history buffs - will return soon!
Arras with its Grand Place is more than 2,000 years old and the mix of Spanish and Flemish architecture as well as the Roman ruins at the archaeological site certainly make for a "bon voyage" back in time.

... been before but it has changed, we learned loads about the war in general, amazing experience to visit, one of the best places we visited on our tour of the WW1 Sites, Great staff, very informative, a must visit
Our guide of the underground was terrific in giving us a view and perspective of what might have taken place in 1916 and 1917.

We included this as part of our WW1 tour and it was one of the best sites we visited - very informative and interesting with a thought provoking finish.
Really interesting site, staff at the reception and the young Lady who guided us round were great, very friendly and bi-lingual which helped us limited French speakers.
