Staying at our hotel in Amiens city centre, you can discover the nearby routes dedicated to World War I memorials. Military graveyards, memorials and museums will allow you to relive one of the 20th century’s darkest periods.
The Battle of the Somme in 1916 was the deadliest in all of the Great War, particularly for British troops. To pay tribute and guard the legacy of the tens of thousands of men who lost their lives on the plains of the Picardy region, the Somme department can provide you with a “remembrance guide” on the emblematic sites of World War I in the region.
From our hotel in Amiens, visit the Historial de la Grande Guerre in Péronne (museum about the First World War), and the Franco-British Memorial and the site museum in Thiepval, and the Somme 1916 Museum in Albert. There’s also the Franco-Australian Museum and the Australian Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux, a remembrance garden engraved with the names of the 11,000 Australian soldiers killed in France).
You can also discover the World War I battlefields on their own thanks to the tailor-made visits provided by our partner Cobbers Special Tours.
