Silver Travel Advisor Partner - Shearings Battlefield Tours
Commemorate wartime anniversaries with Battlefield Tours from Shearings – In remembrance of those who fought for king and country
With over 100 years’ experience, and several prestigious awards under our belt, at Shearings Holidays we have a wide range of great value holidays for you to choose from all year round.
Every single one of our holidays is designed with the over-50s in mind. We’re best known for our coach holidays across the UK and Europe – and it’s easy to see why.
Starting a Shearings coach holiday is so easy. We’ll pick you up from a local joining point near you (there are hundreds to choose from across the country). Sit back, relax and admire panoramic views from the comfort of your coach seat, as your friendly, knowledgeable driver keeps you informed and entertained along the way.
Every year thousands of people visit battlefields, whether to visit the grave of a loved one, or just out of curiosity and a desire to learn more about world history.
Shearings Battlefield Tours are carefully planned to suit anyone with an interest in the World Wars, offering you the opportunity to commemorate the last resting places of the fallen and immerse yourself in centuries of military, war memorials and royal history.
Whether you’re a veteran, relative or just have a general interest, our specialist battlefield tour guides will take you in an interesting journey of discovery, recreating the events of each battle and visiting museums such as the Flanders Fields Museum and the World War Museum.
There’s so much to choose from
Shearings offer a wide range of itineraries taking in key sites across Belgium, France, Holland, and Germany. Or join us as we remember Armistice Day, which marked the end of World War I on the ‘eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month’ each year.
What’s more, for every Shearings Battlefield tour or cruise booked, Shearings will make a donation to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, who support thousands of soldiers, former soldiers and their families each year.
If you’d like to travel with friends or if you’re organising a group trip, we also offer fantastic tours for groups of all sizes. Simply call 01942 823 447 for more information.
