Itinerary

Description

To mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, this November an astonishing art installation will be created next to the ArcelorMittal Orbit in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 72,396 shrouded figures, all made by one man (Somerset artist Rob Heard) will be laid out in rows, shoulder to shoulder covering an area over 4,000 square metres.

Each figure represents a British serviceman killed at the Somme who has no known grave, many of whose bodies were never recovered from the battlefields. The display will be extraordinary in its impact and recognition of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Visitors entering the ArcelorMittal Orbit will have the opportunity to admire this installation from the observation platforms and the outside observation walkway suspended 262ft above the ground.

Coach

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by comfortable coach to London where there’s time at leisure to enjoy the capital at your own pace. From a trip on the London Eye, to a spot of shopping on Oxford Street or strolling through Hyde Park – there is plenty to do. Later this afternoon, the coach picks us up and takes us to the hotel in time for dinner and our overnight stay.

Day 2

After breakfast at the hotel, we travel by coach to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to see the extraordinary Shrouds of the Somme display, either from the ground or from the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit (supplement applies). We rejoin the coach mid-afternoon for our return journey home.
