Ypres Salient area
Salient Tours – twice daily battlefield tours with some of the best guides in the area. For a better understanding of the area and the Great War, a Salient Tour is highly recommended. Salient Tours is the oldest battlefield tour company in the area, running since 1993. New owner, Steve Douglas, a Canadian living in Ypres since 2003, continues the great service and expands it. He is justly proud of his team of guides whom he considers to be the best, most passionate guides around. Their depth of knowledge and passion for the subject comes through with more than just a rattling off of facts and figures, but a fuller description of the battles and, more importantly, the conditions and circumstances the soldiers of all sides had to endure in the ‘slough of despair’ called the Ypres Salient during WW1. Book your tour at the British Grenadier Bookshop on the road between the Menin Gate and the main square, closer to the square.
Varlet Farm – located ten minutes drive from Ypres, in the former no-mans land, this working crop farm has a tastefully remodelled barn which boasts superb accommodation and food for a reasonable price.

You won’t be disappointed. Mention you saw it here.
