Remembrance Travel for Cadets

The Legion provides tours in Europe and the UK to educate young people about the realities of conflict, those affected by wars and the importance of peace.

We give cadets the opportunity to visit and experience the battlefields of the First World War, so that they can commemorate the sacrifices of those before them and educate themselves and others.

Remembrance Travel, created by the Royal British Legion, has a wealth of experience of taking soldiers of all ages and ranks to the sites of these actions. Ypres Salient and the Somme are key sites among the range of tours, which are all tailor-made to the requirements of each cadet unit.

where we can take you

Our range of destinations is always growing, and we are currently offering tours in the UK, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Poland.

Tour durations vary from one day to four or five days, depending on where you want to go and your starting location in the UK.

Remembrance Travel for Cadets is different from other operators in that our tours are totally flexible - you can specify what you want from your trip, and one of our experienced guides will then make all the arrangements for you, as well as lead the tour.

We will do everything we can to make sure your tour reflects the needs of your cadet unit.

View our Remembrance Travel for Cadets brochure (PDF) for more details.

anniversary tours

With the Centenary of the First World War and other significant anniversaries, cadet units are invited to book their tour to coincide with a significant commemoration.

By booking an anniversary tour, cadets will be helping to keep the memories alive of the actual men and women that served and suffered all those years ago. The young people will be part of the future of Remembrance, not just observers of it.
Information about upcoming anniversaries are available on request.
