We're visiting England/France in September and will be touring the D-Day beaches in France, staying in Bayeux. We were also going to stay in Lille to see some WWI sites, but after browsing on this site, I'm wondering if staying in Ypres is a better idea? I'm not up-to-speed on where Canadian troops in particular were involved in the area--any advice for Canadians specifically, or any advice in general for tours? I'd like to find a full-day tour of some sort.
Also (and this may be a stupid question!) is it easy to take the train from Bayeux to Ypres, or what are our transportation options? We weren't planning to rent a car, but could if that's reccommended.
Thanks for your help! These forums are SO helpful!!
