This is a must see if you have any interest in history. Although this seems to be the same comment I could make about many of the places connected with WW1 this one is, in addition to the history, a very beautiful monument in a...More
The Canadian National Vimy Memorial absolutely took my breath away. From a distance it is impressive but close up I can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful memorials I have ever seen. Simply breathtaking. The trenches on the other side of the...More
We went to Vimy Ridge with our son (who is a currently serving Canadian soldier) and his wife & daughter. It was a gorgeous Fall day with the memorial standing tall against the blue skies. You can understand why this location was so important, as...More
we rented a car in Paris (though if you are going to rent one make it closer to the airport so you don't have to drive through the city!) we stopped in Arras for lovely chocolate crepes( since we knew nothing was available when you...More
Visit on a cold winters day when the rain is lashing down and the wind blowing hard, if the temperature is well below freezing that would be all the better. Then you may get some sense of humility that this place engenders. You come away...More
We went there with a coach party on a beautifull sunny day . The views from the ridge were wonderful you can see for miles , that's why it was so important during the war . All the surrounding ground around the monument is cratered...More

Parking at the oblong museum you're greeted inside and can wander around before moving...More

Hello! I believe the best way to Arras/Vimy is through Gare du Nord. I took a quick look on the google maps system that seemed to confirm. I would purchase and reserve tickets for the Gare Du Nord -> Arras train in both directions. However, getting from Le Pecq to Gare Du Nord should only need day tickets as you are on the metro region transit at that point. RER gets you there...Google Maps is a great way to figure out which lines/stations are best at a given time.
All the Best!
