    Ypres from Antwerp

    Would welcome any recommendations for visiting the Menim Gate from Antwerp. Is getting back to Antwerp after the Last Post ceremony a problem? My limited use of Dr Google seems to show that the train service is quite tight.

    It's about a 20 min walk to the station from the Gate.
    You would need to get the train that leaves at 9.15pm which arrives in Antwerp at about 11.30pm.
    You really need to be at the Gate no later than 7.30 for a good view of the ceremony as it gets very busy this time of the year.
    A weekday is better than the weekend.
    Funnily enough we were at the Menin Gate last weekend with a group on our annual 2 day tour of the battlefields.
    Hope that helps

      Thank you Garfield, we have an overnight stay in Antwerp Monday/Tuesday and The Gate is one of the places we would like to visit.
