Spirit of Remembrance travel and tours are ALL bespoke designed, and specially crafted for you by our expert guides, melding the traditional Battlefield Tour with a deeper sentiment which comes from a personal interest or deep family connection.
We understand that it is not only those lost in World Wars and more recent conflicts and their families that seek a personal journey of remembrance, but those also for which present conflicts stir deep emotions of family remembrance. This, combined with the growing interest in family and military history means many of us wish to learn more about historic battles and wars such as WW1, Waterloo, Rorke's Drift of the Anglo-Zulu War to name but a few.

From inception we have included historical information, videos, famous speeches, photographs and forums where you can post on forums, create blogs, uplift videos and pictures, or ask our experienced guides questions. We also promote military associations and their websites with the aim of becoming a central meeting place. We have set up a how to use this website to show you how to get around it and find out what is new.
