Walking the Battlefields
Leger's popular guided battlefield walking tours created by head guide, Paul Reed, are a great way to get close to ground and experience the ‘lay of the land’ as well as visiting the memorials and cemeteries along the way.
Led by their expert guides, the walks are two to four hours long, with plenty of stops along the way where you will hear stories of the valour and sacrifices made and see at first-hand what the combattants faced. They are suitable for anyone with a basic level of fitness.
