Somme battlefields from Paris?

Jump to last reply

I was wondering if anyone had tried to visit one of the Somme battlefield memorials by a day trip from Paris, using train/taxi? I checked the French train site, & there are trains to Albert (closer to where I want to go than Amiens) but I was wondering how difficult it would be for a first time visitor with rusty high school French & a phrasebook? I wanted to see the Newfoundland Memorial, at Beaumont-Hamel, but I know there are Britsh & Ulster ones nearby. Any info ?
