Normandy

School Trips to Normandy

Overview

Price from
£215
Based on 3 night tour for
40 students and 5 staff

With a history steeped in fame, Normandy provides the perfect setting to encourage your students to learn more about this beautiful region's heritage and culture.

See why Monet and Géricault immortalised the region on canvas; explore the craftsmanship involved in the creation of the Bayeaux Tapestry or visit Rouen, the location where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake. One of the must-see destinations is Arromanches – our trip here will give an in-depth insight to the formidable feat undertaken by Allied troops in the D-Day landings.

If the going gets a little too hectic, take some time to relax. Take a tour around the deluge of culinary delights from the region. Sample Calvados at its source, see how Camembert is made and make your own baguette in a cooperative boulangerie.

Let us take the stress out of - and put the excitement in to - a school trip to Normandy, and let your students grow in stature with their chosen subjects.
