The whole place is just so moving. The wonderful memorial, the trenches and the excellent visitor centre. Try and visit the temporary exhibition as it is both unusual and very informative.

Simple yet informative tour at the Canadian Vimy Ridge Memorial Centre. Tours were only 30 minutes in length but the Canadian guides were very knowledgeable. The monument is beautiful and peaceful. Worth visiting to pay respects to the soldiers from WW1.

We didn’t pre book when we went in May. I’m unsure if you are able to pre book, look on line to see as it will be busy this time of year.
