My wife and I arrived directly from London via train to Arras. There is no luggage storage at the Arras train station, nor at the Vimy information centre, and our cab driver could not keep our luggage. So we had to split up for the...More

One of the places where you will feel the history and story behind. Have been here several times and will probably go again. Recommend to have a good guide and not be in a rush. An important event in our common history.

Vimy was one of several Canadian memorials on our trip. Both Vimy and Beaumont Hamel have free tours provided by the Canadian government and worth taking the time to visit. Even though we knew "No Mans Land" was not a big area it was shocking...More

Fantastic experience. The tunnel tour is a must do. The Canadian guides are wonderful. You can't begin to understand what the western front and trench warfare were like without coming here. It is very moving and is a memorial, not touristy at all.

We had a great tour with our guide Liam. He is very knowledgeable and kept it quite interesting. The trenches and tunnels underground were very awakening. The memorial is amazing. Any Canadian travelling in this area just has to take a few hours to visit...More

The monument itself is breath-taking, towering over the French countryside and glowing white against the sky. The Canada Bereft sculpture captures the feeling of senseless loss, not just to Canada but to all of humanity. That loss is further conveyed by the list of names...More

So proud to be Canadian and so thankful for what Canadians and allied forces accomplished. The memorial, and trenches and tunnels were all a great experience - one that my family will never forget. Assuming you are making the trip from Paris, I would recommend...More

During a recent visit to the Vimy Ridge Memorial I commented to a friend that it reminded me of the Giza pyramids in that you can see it for miles but you cannot appreciate the size of the sculpture until you get up to it....More

I think that the memorial and trenches wouldn't be an issue physically, but the tunnels where you are climbing up and down stairs, metres underground, could be with children that age. You might ask the guides if you could... More

Oh, and the students are a credit to their nation and the poor souls who fought so bravely and made the ultimate sacrifice so far from their families and homeland.

We arrive by Rail Europe in Vimy. Is there transportation available to the Monument? Or do we need to walk. When I googled the distance, it looked like it was 5KM. I also need to know if there is a place to eat. We are going to be there for the whole day and have little ones that need to be fed. Should I bring a picnic lunch?

Hi again Brad, I wanted to add to my original answer. I took a peek at the street view of Vimy (village) on google maps and see that there are indeed places to eat even a "Allo Pizza" which might appeal to the little ones. I... More
