Normandy is an ever popular destination for school trips. It affords numerous learning opportunities through guided visits to motivate and enhance understanding of one of the great historical events of the Second World War.
At Inspired Travel we aim to offer well-designed and inspiring learning experiences for our groups, be they large or small in number, together with a personal service, professional and flexible style from the first enquiry to the groups return.
Our itineraries are bespoke and tailored to an individual group; nothing is "off the shelf" although some follow common themes. As such your itinerary is as individual to you as it is to us and we are happy to try to accommodate all requirements.
Just a stones throw across the Channel, Normandy offers numerous opportunities to develop and understanding of the events that unfolded in June 1944. Museums, a 360 cinema, visits to gun batteries and Pegasus Bridge will bring the classroom alive.
