Faubourg-d'Amiens Cemetery
#1 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Thanks to the excellent CWG Commission web site easily located the correct stone and spent some time looking around the very peaceful and moving memorial and cemetery.
Like all Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites, it is well tended and it is easy to locate the grave (if one exists) or the name engraved on the memorial wall of the person you want to remember.
Wellington Tunnels, Memorial to the Battle of Arras
#2 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
... been before but it has changed, we learned loads about the war in general, amazing experience to visit, one of the best places we visited on our tour of the WW1 Sites, Great staff, very informative, a must visit
Our guide of the underground was terrific in giving us a view and perspective of what might have taken place in 1916 and 1917.
Place des Heros
#3 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
It is a lively location with many terraces where you can enjoy the impressive view on the beautifully restored square and its buildings with their uniform architecture, with a drink.
While we were in Arras as a stop over to see Vimy we took time to wander around and take in this site.
Carriere Wellington, Memorial de la Bataille d'Arras
#4 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Really interesting site, staff at the reception and the young Lady who guided us round were great, very friendly and bi-lingual which helped us limited French speakers.
Top WW1 location for all pilgrims to the Battle of Arras sites.
Le Beffroi d'Arras
#5 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
This building is absolutely stunning in architecture, you can take in the underground tour and then take the lift to the top where you can take on the sights over the whole of Arras... Well worth a visit..!
Wonderful view from the clock tower, good photo opportunity, being able to look down upon the square and surrounding area makes you realise how big Arras is.
Grand Place
#6 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Lovely architecture, great shops bars and restaurants, also close the Somme sights for history buffs - will return soon!
Arras with its Grand Place is more than 2,000 years old and the mix of Spanish and Flemish architecture as well as the Roman ruins at the archaeological site certainly make for a "bon voyage" back in time.

If we hadn't been shown this grave site by a local we'd never have known it was there.
St Vaast

Zivy Crater
#13 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
we made a road trip from Paris to Vimy, and along the way stopped at multiple craters and war sites.
Note: If you are traveling from Neuville-Saint-Vaast to Thelus, along the D49, take the turn-off to a construction site on your right, before you go over the bridge crossing the A26/E15.
Lichfield Crater
#14 of 21 Sights & Landmarks in Arras
Beautifully kept memorial, as are all the Commonwealth War Graves Commission sites.
It was worth straying off the standard beaten path and while ok in summer or a dry winter I would advise not visiting when its muddy and wet just in getting to road and to site could be difficult.
