It was a worth while visit and one I would recommend to anyone who is interested in history. It tied in with all the ceremonies going on around the Vimy 100 celebrations.

This is a really good experience at a good price. Loved putting on the WW1 Helmets and the Audio packs really helped to bring the place to life. Guides were excellent and felt humbled to be in the tunnels, almost 100 years to the day...More

Tours are fully guided and timed. Don't know if they do advanced booking. We turned up on a quiet Sunday morning and waited 20 mins for our tour start.

We would like to visit on Saturday, April 15th, 2017, but we are not a group and it seems that it is fully booked. Is there a group we can join? We only have that one day in Arras.

You will be lucky to find a group that has pre booked. It's a brilliant place to visit and obviously very popular. Keep checking in for cancellations.
