About the event

Monday 24 June to Friday 28 June 2024

We invite you to join us on our annual jaunt abroad for a tour to Normandy.

The trip is being planned with our Boundless partners, Brittany Ferries. We will be leaving on the 8:30 crossing from Poole to Cherbourg, a relaxing way to begin a few days of sightseeing arriving in Cherbourg at approximately 2pm and after disembarkation we have a steady drive through Normandy to our hotel.

Situated in the heart of the Normandy Beaches, accommodation will be at The Ibis Hotel, Port en Bessin, Normandy. We will return on the 16:30 ferry from Cherbourg, arriving back in the UK at approximately 21:30 UK time. You will be at liberty to explore the D-Day landing beaches, visit the famous Pegasus Bridge which was freed by the British 6thAirborne Division glider unit and the first house to be liberated now the nearby Café Gondree. Other important historical sites such as Sainte Mère Eglise, Pointe du Hoc, the military cemeteries and Bayeux with the museum of the Battle of Normandy. Arromanches has the remains of the artificial Mulberry Harbour, which played an enormous part in the largest seaborne invasion in history, and you can visit the Musée du Débarquement, which depicts the construction of the port. Or take an amazing journey at the very thought provoking Arromanches 360 Circular Cinema, which retraces the first 100 days of the landings.

It will also give you the opportunity to visit the brand new memorial unveiled in honour of the British troops who died at D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. This incredible, temple-like structure with 160 stone columns sits atop a hillside overlooking Gold Beach. While you're there why not try the delicious food and drink that this area is famous for which includes cheese, apples, cream and of course Calvados.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
