This is a remarkable museum/memorial hidden under the streets of Arras. There is plenty of free parking and it is well signposted, so finding it is easy. The reception area has a couple of displays showing the history of the conflict in Arras in WW1. You are then given an audio device, much like an old style walkman, this gives you commentary in your language as you walk round the tunnels. The tour starts with a presentation and then you descend in a lift to the underground areas. Underground are a number of medieval quarries which were joined together by a series of tunnels during WW1. The plan was to hide the allied army underground until ready to attack the Germans. There are lots of artefacts to remind you that all these men were living down here. The staff are very friendly and the visit was very thought provoking, the fact that 4000 men were dying every day during the battle is something we cannot comprehend today.
