Skylark Battlefield Tours offers guides and bespoke itineraries for groups wishing to visit the Western Front and the battlefield of the Great War 1914-1918.

After 25 years in the field and 18 years of operating bespoke tours for schools, groups and families, we have now decided to cease operating as a tour company, organising the components of a tour package but will continue to offer the services of a guide and provide an itinerary if required.

Please contact us to discuss options

Over the years, individuals, groups and schools discovered Skylark Battlefield Tours by either direct recommendation or after much searching and finally discovered an independent battlefield tour company that provided an individually created, well balanced and exciting itinerary.

An itinerary to challenge and draw you into the historical landscape of France and Flanders.

There has always been an undemanding but incredible attention to historical detail in the interpretation of landscape, conflict and the all important personal stories linking the past to the present.

The most important aspect of travelling with Skylark Battlefield Tours has always been its individuality and operational flexibility.
