Study the Battle of Normandy at numerous museums, memorials and military cemeteries.
The D-Day Landings sites in Normandy, associated museums and historic locations are first class locations for school trips. Your school tour can start by taking Brittany Ferries to Ouistreham which is next to British Sword beach where many British forces landed. From here you can explore Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno beaches, visiting the German defensive positions. A wealth of museums bring the events vividly to life – parachute museums, an excellent Canadian museum, a military vehicle museum and a Mulberry Harbour museum. Poignant visits to British, American and German cemeteries remind students of the human cost of the struggle for Europe that was played out here.
The withdrawal from Dunkirk, at the very start of the conflict, can also be studied as part of our excellent and detailed package. If you want to spend time discovering what life was like in France during the German occupation we can help you create a tour that includes a variety of relevant sites and attractions. Cross Curricular Studies, MFL teachers and History teachers can take full advantage of the historic and wider cultural attractions to create inspiring and unique school visits that support the curriculum..
