About Us

Discovery Battlefield Tours is based in Southampton, England and was established to provide high quality, tailor-made tours to the battlefields of the old Western Front. Our tours are aimed at small groups of family and/or friends who wish to visit these areas without the limitations inevitably imposed when touring with larger groups. Our friendly, relaxed and informal tours put the emphasis on allowing you to choose the pace at which each day proceeds and allow you to have as much or as little input into the planning of the tour as you wish. From the first time you speak with Discovery Battlefield Tours to arriving back home after your visit, I will be your only point of contact. This will allow me to gain a thorough understanding of exactly what you want out of your trip-whether you wish to visit where a relative fought or died, or simply wish to gain a better understanding of the conflicts.

My interest on both world wars goes back as far as I can remember to my childhood. Sunday afternoon war films kindled my interest in the conflicts and latterly I would spend any free time reading and re-reading a large collection of books built up over the years leading to a greater understanding of the stories that made up these terrible but fascinating periods in our history. My Grandfather fought on the Western Front with the 10th Battalion King’s Liverpool Regiment (The Liverpool Scottish) – the battalion Captain Noel Chavasse was attached to. Captain Chavasse was the only man to be awarded the Victoria Cross twice in the Great War and one of only 3 double recipients of the V.C in history.

Irrespective of whether you have a direct family connection to either war, you will undoubtedly find a visit to the battlefields an immensely rewarding and, for many, a very emotional experience.
