This really puts WW1 trench warfare into perspective. It's difficult to appreciate the proximity of the enemy lines and engineering that went into making them without seeing them up close. The craters left by explosives dug under the trenches are particularly haunting. I cannot believe the whole exhibit is free to access. Good on France and Canada for keeping the site preserved so well. The monument to peace erected on the site is best on a sunny day, so the artists vision of the ocean between two continents can be fully appreciated.
Warm welcome from serving member of Canadian forces. Detailed exhibitions in the visitor centre. Interesting to see the front line and all the bomb craters and mine craters - like a tree - enclosed lunar landscape (not that I've been to the moon). Title of preserved trenches a bit misleading - more "reconstructed from concrete sand bags" but the general effect was there.
A highly moving experience. The replica trench systems offer a unique look into the landscape of the great war as well as underground supply routes. Astoundingly power place to visit.
Amazing destination to learn and be greatful. The distance between the two front line trenches is staggeringly close.
Very serene, peaceful place of remembrance. The trenches have been well preserved and though modernised with it, you can imagine the squalor and misery of the men who had to suffer the trenches - nevermind dig them. Visitor centre is very informative. Dogs not allowed.
