Commemorative tours to visit European sites and museums, with informative guides.

Battlefield tours take you across Europe to discover the locations of World Wars I and II, with highly knowledgeable guides and exceptional itineraries. Travel by coach or take a river cruise to visit and commemorate history’s legacy.

Shearings Battlefield Tours

2015 is a major anniversary date for both World War I and World War II, so several special battlefield tours and river cruises have been created by Shearings Holidays with this in mind.

The history behind these tours is immense, particularly if you are visiting to honour the memory of a family member or friend. Whatever your reasons, there are remarkable and interesting places to see.

The battlefield tours are all accompanied by an expert guide, who has in-depth information to share and has a good understanding of the area. 

You will hear about the history of each location you travel to and how the battles occurred. Several tours include a trip to relevant museums where you can discover even more about the facts.

Tours visit major sites in Europe, including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Channel Islands and The Netherlands.

In addition, if you book a Shearings Holidays battlefield tour or river cruise, a donation is given to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, which gives lifetime support to many soldiers and retired soldiers, along with their families, each year.

Taking a tour is simple: after more than 100 years’ in business, Shearings have excellent experience in providing great holidays. You are picked up from one of several hundred joining points across the country, then you can begin your tour in comfort, with a confident driver, who is used to group touring and keeps you informed on the journey.
