Ypres and the Great War

Battlefield sites around Ypres

Between 1914 and 1918 hundreds of thousands of soldiers fought doggedly over this cramped corner of the Western Front in four years of concentrated warfare around Ypres

The desolate battlefield landscape that defines the Ypres Salient's horrors in popular memory is long gone but many reminders of the profound impression the Great War made here, remain today.

Many people visit the war graves of Tyne Cot Cemetery or want to see an actual trench like the Yorkshire Trench.
