Leave Folkestone this morning via Eurotunnel to arrive at your hotel in Arras by around lunchtime. In the afternoon you will have the choice to stay in Arras and explore at leisure, or take the coach to visit the Canadian memorial at nearby Vimy Ridge.

Today, we rejoin the coach for the short journey to Cambrai. From here, cruise northwards to Paillencourt, where you will turn westwards to follow the Canal de la Sensée.

We conclude your first day's journey at the strategic junction of the Sensée and the Canal du Nord at Arleux.
