Weekend visit to Ypres (Ieper)

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by 2/51, Jan 31, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am hoping to visit St Georges Church in Ypres at the end of February to attend a dedication and memorial unveiling for 94 "Old Forresters" who were killed during the battle.

    However, I am trying to get recommendations on how best to get there and any hotels etc. I am up near Aberdeen so it looks like getting to London first, then either Train or Plane.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Lookat flights from Edinburgh to Brussels then the train to Ypres might be cheaper and quicker. Ryanair (shudder) do some cheap deals.

    Also speak with Poppy Travel they will know some good deals no doubt.
