A visit here is wonderful-put on your hard hat and go--mainly dedicated to soldiers of WW1 but originally dug out centuries ago. In high season, book ahead as each visit has limited access--but a great experience.

Evocative of the lost soldiers far from home. Very personal and powerful. Blends beautifully with the tour of the caves and tunnels.

The tunnels are just a couple of minutes outside of arras and are very interesting.You put on a helmet and have audio with you and a guide as you travel around under ground.Definately worth a visit.
