Raise A Glass To Our Fallen Great War Heroes

WINE tour specialists Grape Escapes are combining a visit to the most prominent battlefield sites and museums of the First World War with a trip to Reims to raise a glass (or two) of Champagne to our fallen heroes, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the conflict.

This Flexible Champagne and Battlefield Tour will take you from the UK to Arras and Reims, where every history and Champagne lover will experience this perfect combination while staying in two elegant hotels. Prices start from just £472 per person

A first night at the four star Hotel de l’Univers in Arras is the base for a visit to the Vimy Ridge memorial park, then the route the Champagne region takes you across the former battlefields of the Somme, stopping at the famous Thiepval memorial and visiting the Museum of the Great War in Peronne.

To nights in in Champagne includes a tour and tastings at a large at a top Champagne House in Reims and a visit to  a smaller family-run producer, followed by a three course Champagne tasting dinner in a Reims restaurant.
