Normandy School Trips

The region of Normandy is scattered with villages, meadows and farmland which is predominately farmed for it's Apples and Cheeses. Besides Normandy's flourishing dairy-farming heartland it is also home to the infamous D-Day landing beaches, which are dotted with captivating museums and moving memorials. These beaches, consisting of long low dunes, are the flatter and sandier beaches of the Northern French coast and for these reasons were chosen for the 1944 Allied invasion which ended World War 2.

On top of the Second World War, Normandy also has exquisite cultural heritage with the remarkable legacy of the Normans being featured throughout. For example you can take a trip to the ancient, artistic and architectural city of Bayeux, where you will find the thousand-year-old embroidery of the Bayeux Tapestry, along with some outstanding Cathedrals.


Separated from it's neighbour by the Couesnon River, Brittany has mile upon mile of rugged coastline, and is famed for its unique and impressive prehistoric sites and its medieval architecture. Nantes and Rennes are the two largest towns and a great base for any school trips to this region.

The prime time for visits to Normandy tends to be July and August but if your main reason is to tour the WW2 D-Day beaches then you'll find them much quieter outside of these months, with the region still seeing some glorious days in the earlier months such as March and April. That being said Normandy still gets the occasional down pour, even in August!
