School Trips - WW1 Battlefields
We have put COVID 19 measures in place for the health and safety of our groups and are also offering increased flexibility for deposits, cancellations and postponements. Check out our website for more details.
Any trip to the battlefields is a poignant and thought-provoking experience. At Inspired Travel we aim to offer well-designed and inspiring learning experiences for our groups, be they large or small in number.
Our itineraries are bespoke and tailored to an individual group; nothing is "off the shelf" although some follow common themes. As such your itinerary is as individual to you as it is to us and we are happy to try to accommodate all requirements.
