One of the best WW1 memorial sites we've visited. The preserved trenches give you a real feel of what the soldiers of WW1 had to endure, not just fighting the enemy but the conditions too. The caribou statue overlooking the site is breath taking. All...More

This site has some good trench remains. Staff here are very helpfully and the site well maintained. This place can give the visitor a good idea about how trench wars were conducted. It shows the potential closeness of the two front lines could be! How...More

The memorial to the 684 Newfoundlanders killed on the opening day of the battle of the Somme is very different and striking: a caribou atop a small peak as though overlooking the battle field. Names of the missing are inscribed at the base. The battlefield...More

Terrific memorial to the Newfoundland dead of WW1. Guides available to give you a free tour if required. Worth visiting.

On the day we visited this memorial there was a group tour with a guide. The group was small probably 8-10 former servicemen plus wives. During the tour of the memorial site the group was quite jovial. My friend and I walked up to the...More

Impressive monument and a must see in the Somme area. Canadian students who come over for a few months give tours (not compulsory). The death tree appears to be the main spot of the memorial park.

As a Newfoundlander it is almost a pilgrimage to visit Beaumont-hamel. Soon as you walk threw its gates you can feel something change in the air, a sentiment wash over you and the realization of the loss of so much for so little. A beautifully...More

Very well organized. Free parking provides enough space. Free tour takes about 45 minutes in English or French and is done by native Canadian guides who will bring you the story of the New Foundland soldiers in a very good way. Afterwards make sure to...More

I think Arras is closer but travelling from Amiens would not be a problem. The site is far away from any public transport - the easiest way is to hire a car I'm afraid. You may be able to join a coach tour to the site... More

We didn't see any dogs or signs. There is a large car park right outside the entrance and the small visitor centre right opposite who would advise. The paths are paved so would think OK but not 100% sure. Try e mailing them... More
