Educational trips to Normandy

Normandy, from where William the Conqueror embarked to invade England in 1066, and the Allies landed to liberate France on 6th June 1944, shares so much history with the UK, making it an excellent option for school trips.

Our trips cover history, both medieval & modern, language, & culture. There are fascinating visits all over the region, from Mont Saint-Michel (one of France’s most stunning sights) in the south, Cherbourg in the north, Rouen in the east – and everything else in the middle!

Choose from one our ready-made trips, or we’d be happy to work with you to design an itinerary that works best for you.
