History tour to Normandy by coach: 5 days, 4 nights

An educational school trip to Normandy is a perfect choice to aid students’ understanding of some of the key events during WWII (as well as links to studies of the Norman Conquest with Bayeux and Falaise). Visits to the D-Day Landing beaches, war museums and memorials will give the students unique insights and learning experiences. You could also choose to stay at our Château du Baffy which has historic significance to WWII when the building and hamlet of Colombiers-sur-Seulles were occupied by the Germans.
