Wilfred Owen

This tour is designed to visit poignant and pertinent locations for an understanding of the history and environment that prevailed during the Great War in order to better appreciate the times and conditions that generated so much poetry and prose that we study today.

The tour visits sites on the Somme and follows the Wilfred Owen Trail that traces his last days in 1918.
