WATERLOO BATTLEFIELD TOUR 2009

Every year, usually on the weekend in June which falls nearest to the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo (June 18th, 1815), an impressive historical re-enactment takes place on this most famous of all the many battlefields of Europe.

Visiting Waterloo for the re-enactment battle weekend has become something of an annual pilgrimage for me and my trusty camera, and this year was no exception.

The tour features the Waterloo Visitors Center in Mont St.Jean (including views of the battlefield from the top of the Lion Mound, and the impressive 360-degree battlefield panorama), the Allies bivouac in Hougoumont, the farmhouse of La Haye Sainte, and a few other battlefield landmarks.

It culminates with a re-enactment of the Battle of Plancenoit.
