On a history school trip to Normandy, your group will explore the largest and most ambitious amphibious military operations ever staged – the Normandy landings of June 1944!
No war has affected so many people over such as wide area as the Second World War. We can arrange visits to the sites of the British and American beach landings along the coast, as well as museum visits that will provide the background to these.
We also offer purpose-built school group accommodation in Normandy, which is close to Juno Beach and just a short drive from all the important sights in the area. Self-contained and in the centre of a quiet village, this is the ideal base for your group on your history school trip to Normandy!
