Plan My Trip

Day 1 - Home - Dover - Northern France
Arriving late evening for our overnight stay. (Dinner is not included on day 1)

En-Route Excursion to Caen & her M�morial Museum
En-route from Calais to our base at Villedieu we visit the M�morial at Caen, which was contructed on the site of a wartime Blockhaus (entry included in tour cost). Often cited as the best WWII museum in the World, the M�morial also has galleries dedicated to the Nobel Peace Prize and the Cold.

Full Day Excursion to D-Day Landing Beaches & Arromanches360
We journey to the important beaches where Operation Overlord landed in Normandy in 1944. In Arromanches we visit the Arromanches360 Cinema (entry included in tour cost), a unique circular cinema whose film exhibitions explore the preparation, execution and aftermath of the landings.

Day 5 En-route from Villedieu to the Channel we visit Dieppe, scene of the first Allied raid on Northern France in 1942. The largely unsuccessful operation suffered from a lack or air and artillery cover, although it has been suggested that the raid was merely a cover for an Allied attempt to capture an Enigma coding machine from German Naval HQ. We then cross the Channel for our overnight stay in Folkestone.

Day 6 - Folkestone - Interchange - Home
via the interchange where we rejoin our feeder coaches.
