Follow in the footsteps of King Henry V’s English army as they stand against the numerically superior French Army commanded by the Constable of France, Charles d’Albret, near the small hamlet of Azincourt or, as the English call it, AGINCOURT.
In the early morning of St Crispin’s Day, 25th October 1415, King Henry V’s dysentery ravaged and outnumbered English Army, which had been marching for 17 gruelling days after leaving Harflleur, found itself forced to give battle against a relatively fresh and numerically superior French Army commanded by the Constable of France, Charles d’Albret, near the small hamlet of Azincourt or AGINCOURT.
Join one of our team of battlefield historians on a day tour of this pivotal battle of the Hundred Years’ war. They will recount the events that occurred and tell you some of the stories about those who took part, as they lead you across the ground over which this epic battle was fought.
Our In The Footsteps® One-Day Tour of the Battle of Agincourt begins at 08:00 hrs when we collect you from your agreed pick-up location in London and drive to Folkestone to catch the 10:20 hrs Eurotunnel crossing to Calais. On arriving in Calais, we head to the Centre Historique Médiéval Agincourt. Here your battlefield historian will familiarise you with the background history of the Hundred Years War and the Battle of Agincourt, as you stroll around the excellent exhibits of this modern Visitor’s Centre and Museum.
We then head out onto the battlefield to begin our walk. From the Centre Historique Médiéval, we walk to Maisoncelle, where King Henry’s now trapped and beleaguered army spent the night in the pouring rain before the battle, before moving to the Agincourt Memorial at the southern end of the battlefield. From the memorial, we move northwards to explore the battlefield taking in the English Army’s initial line of deployment before following their advance towards the waiting French. We stop along the central road that marks the approximate area where King Henry halted and deployed his archers to goad the French into an attack. There your battlefield historian will tell the story of what occurred before you visit the site of the mass grave where the bodies of some 5800 Frenchmen were interred in three pits. It is then back to the Centre Historique Médiéval Agincourt to rejoin our transport.
With our tour complete, we head back to Calais to catch the 18:20 hrs Eurotunnel to Folkestone. On arrival in the UK, we return to London and drop you off at your agreed location at approximately 20:00 hrs.
