Slovenia has some amazing first world war sites. Bunkers you can just wonder around, barbed wire and gun carriages on the top of mountains
Best First World War place to visit
Great thread - I was going to add some sites but most of them have been mentioned.
Flesquieres cemetery is close by...
Talbot House (in Poperinge) is an interesting place to look at because of its history, and nearby Lijsenthoek Cemetery has nearly as many graves as Tyne Cot but is MUCH less visited.
Another for Theipval herel. Can also recommend a book called steel rain or rain of steel or similar. Really eye opening read (german perspective) about how it wasn't all trenches and massed assaults etc.
Oh and it sounds a bit off but it has a museum and gift shop as well so good for the kids.
I'd do a bit of research about your local "Pals" battalions and try and follow where they went. The unusual aspect about WW1 was that communities volunteered enmass and served togther, this was probably the last time it will ever happen
