D-Day 75th Anniversary tour

On 6th June 1944 over 132 thousand Allied soldiers from 15 countries/regions landed on five beaches in Normandy, with over 23 thousand paratroopers landing at strategic targets inland, heralding the beginning of the end of World War 2.

These beaches would witness what remains the largest amphibious assault in history The troops on the beaches were supported by nearly 200 thousand sailors aboard nearly 7000 vessels (only 200 of which were warships), and sorties flown by thousands of aircrew in over 9000 aircraft (not counting the gliders), and 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of this remarkable undertaking.

Starting in Portsmouth at the D-Day museum, our tour we will also visit the famous map room at Southwick house (TBC).  Dinner will be provided before we follow in the troops footsteps and sail overnight from Portsmouth to Normandy.

Once disembarked we will visit all 5 beaches beaches, Commonwealth and US cemeteries, the German batteries at Longues-sur-Mer, Arromanches-Les-Bains (where you can watch "Normandy's 100 Days” at the 360 Cinema) and Pointe du Hoc, as well as Pegasus bridge and many other places of significance.

We spend two nights in a quality four star Hotel right on the Normandy beaches, with parking included. Whether you’re going to learn more about this historic event, or on a mission to track down some family history, this is an absorbing tour.

D-Day was 75 years ago but the legacy lives on in the historical sites that we will visit.

Come with us and see for yourself...
