Self Drive Arras

An historic and attractive town with much to offer

The historic town of Arras was at the centre of much of the fighting in World War 1, narrowly avoiding capture by the Germans in the initial rush of their invasion in Autumn 1914. Right behind the Front Line, the town’s civilian population was evacuated and its defending troops lived in tunnels under constant bombardment by enemy shelling. A visit to Arras allows you to tour the tunnels and cellars underneath the town where troops sheltered during the war. The nearby Vimy ridge and two towering pylons of the Vimy memorial make a memorable excursion.
