Welcome to the Ypres Branch of The Royal British Legion

Contact the Branch Secretary


There are a number of local hotels listed on our Branch website under accommodation.  

Accomodation can also be found using the official Ypres Tourist Information website.

You may also wish to consider looking for hotel accommodation outwith Ypres, Ostend is a popular and cost effective choice for many.

The Last Post:

If you wish to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate or deliver the Exhortation, you will need to contact the Last Post Association.

Meeting up:

The Ypres Branch has over 150 members, most of whom reside outside Belgium. In terms of local members we are a relatively small branch and have no dedicated venue.

We do try to meet with visiting groups where possible and certainly invite them to any of our planned events. We have yet to set our full calendar of activities for the year

If you are visiting as a Branch, Association or Club, please let us know well in advance, we can then advise further on our availability and events.
