Wellington’s Waterloo’: When all the scaffolding is gone! After all the media coverage of the June 2015 Waterloo bicentennial re-enactment next spring and summer, many will want to visit the battlefield for the first time. This tour will take in the restored Chateau Hougoumont and the new monument to the British soldiers who fought at Waterloo (the first monument to the British at Waterloo. All other nations Germans, Prussians, Dutch, Belgians, French etc all have had theirs there for many years). We will also visit the new state of the art ‘Memorial Museum’ and walk the ground where Napoleon met his ‘Waterloo’. This intriguing WKPS tour will place the epic that was Waterloo in context, showing how it led to the creation of the Europe that we know today.
