First World War Poetry Tours

Our Wilfred Owen tour follows his military career from the Somme in 1917 to the Sambre-Oise Canal and visits his grave at Ors.  Other locations include Cerisy-Gailly, Savy Wood and Joncourt.  The Western Front tour examines changing attitudes to the war against the backdrop of the battlefields of Flanders and Picardy, including the Gas Attack at Pilckem Ridge (near Francis Ledwidge’s grave), the Somme and Passchendaele.


War Poetry tours are available to be booked by groups of 40 or more people and their appeal extends to academic cohorts, library reading groups, evening class students, literary societies, University of the Third Age groups, Rotarians, Masonic organisations, Women’s Institutes and police groups.
