It's thought that the death of his friend, Alexis Helmer, inspired John McCrae's WWI poem 'In Flanders Fields' in 1915. This poetic day trip from Brussels includes lunch and a visit to the place where McCrae wrote it, Essex Farm Cemetery - plus many other sites dedicated to the fallen of the First World War.

Flanders Fields was a major battle-site in the First World War, from 1914 to 1918. In the Essex Farm Cemetery your guide will take you back in time, via the trenches and commemorative statue to the Canadian resistance during the German gas attack of 1915.

After lunch you'll visit the biggest Commonwealth cemetery in the world, Tyne Cot Cemetery, as well as Hill 60 or Hill 62 - memorial sites lined with Canadian maple trees. See the cratered ground and old German bunkers, and soak up the stories of trench war in the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres.

Then pay tribute to Britain's missing soldiers and officers at the Menin Gate, before being transported back to Brussels. It's a thought-provoking, oftentimes heart-wrenching day out that should put everything else into perspective.
