Activities for Normandy
Frequently Asked Questions
You can visit Normandy all year round, but if you're looking to keep costs down on your school trip to Normandy, then we would recommend travelling in low season, from September to February.
Most of our groups travel to Normandy by coach, which means they have the use of the coach when they're there to travel to visits and activities. This is highly recommended, as Normandy is a rural area and public transport isn't as frequent as in the cities.
Our groups are always really keen to visit the atmospheric tidal island of Mont St. Michel. And bakery and chocolate factory visits are hugely popular too, especially with French groups. If you're visiting Normandy on a history school trip, you must not miss a visit to the Arromanches Landings Museum. Remember, we'll tailor your trip to meet your specific curriculum and learning requirements, so please don't hesitate to contact us for further information on suitable activities for your trip.
There are quite a few free visits and activities that our groups like to include in their itineraries, such as visiting the landings beaches, military cemeteries, local markets and the fantastic Graindorge cheese factory.
You certainly can! Normandy is a fantastic destination for French groups, food technology groups and history groups studying either WW2 or the history of warfare. Please just contact us for more information on how we can tailor your itinerary to suit the makeup of your group.
