    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    The Belfort tower, Sluis
    Half Day: Sluis

    Sluis, with its quaint atmosphere and typically Dutch style, is a wonderful place to visit. We’ll travel to this town in the Netherlands on an optional excursion, and will have a few hours to explore its attractions. These include an eye-catching Gothic belfry and a stone mill.

    Ypres
    Half Day: Ypres with Battlefields

    Ypres’ location in Belgium made it a strategic centre for German forces during World War I, as it was seen as the gateway to the rest of Belgium, as well as being their entry into France. Due to this, a number of fierce battles took place in the city, which caused a tragic loss of life on both the German and allied sides.

    We’ll be able to learn more about the events of World War I and their effects on Ypres during this interesting Battlefields tour, which will take us to some of the important monuments and locations in and around the Ypres area.

    While we’re in Ypres, we’ll also get to admire the beautiful Cloth Hall, which dates from medieval times, as well as other attractions such as Saint Martin's Cathedral and the Menin Gate.
