Armistice Day in Ypres – November 2011

 

 

Hotel:  Best Western Flanders Lodge

 

Very nice, clean and modern place on the outskirts of Ypres, just within walking distance at a push. Large bedrooms - intended for school trips, so bunk beds in some rooms in addition to singles - decent bar and food. One of the better 'out of town' hotels we've used.

 

Battlefield visits:

 

In Flanders Fields Museum, special 11am service at the Menin Gate on Nov 11, Tyne Cot.
