One of the best WW1 memorial sites we've visited. The preserved trenches give you a real feel of what the soldiers of WW1 had to endure, not just fighting the enemy but the conditions too. The caribou statue overlooking the site is breath taking. All...More

I think Arras is closer but travelling from Amiens would not be a problem. The site is far away from any public transport - the easiest way is to hire a car I'm afraid. You may be able to join a coach tour to the site... More

We didn't see any dogs or signs. There is a large car park right outside the entrance and the small visitor centre right opposite who would advise. The paths are paved so would think OK but not 100% sure. Try e mailing them... More
