BATTLE OF NORMANDY
This is our introduction to D-Day & Normandy tour.
We spend 5 days touring the famous locations across the whole region.
You will see the spot the Gliders landed at Pegasus Bridge, the route of the Commando assault on Sword beach, The infamous Omaha Beach that was fought over so fiercely and so long on the 6thJune, St Mere Eglise where the paratroopers landed in the town square, the incredible engineering of the Mulberry harbour at Arromanches, Pointe du Hoc where the US Rangers climbed the cliffs on ladders ‘borrowed’ for the London Fire Brigade and the near complete German battery at Longue sur Mer, plus many other significant sites, bunkers and museums.
We also have a couple of movie nights (with bbq if the weather permits) where we can lightheartedly dissect Hollywood’s take on D-Day!
There will be time for quiet reflection at the American cemetery overlooking Omaha beach and the British & Commonwealth cemetery in Bayeux.
