5 819 Reviews | Add your review

Bayeux makes an ideal launching place to take a trip through history to the final stages of the Second World War. It was on the Normandy coast near Bayeux that the Allies undertook the biggest amphibious landing in history. It was the first stage of the campaign that would lead to victory.

You can pay tribute to the soldiers who fought at Omaha Beach on an afternoon tour of the Normandy beaches from Bayeux. You'll visit some of the famous battlefield sites of the campaign and gain invaluable insights into the wartime experience of the soldiers who fought and died there.

A tour of Sword, Beach, and the British Airborne Sector takes you through the famous site of Pegasus Bridge, captured just after midnight on D-Day by elements of the 6th Airborne Division, as well as the Hillman Bunker complex.

Alternatively, you can choose your own itinerary from sites including Utah Beach, Sainte Mère Église, Pointe du Hoc, Longues sur Mer, and the American and German cemeteries. See the landing beaches, the inland battlefields and cemeteries, visit the museums and listen to the stories and history behind each site. 

Also available are tours that will take you to sites of significance to the history of the American role in the landing. Places visited include Utah beach, Omaha beach, the German and American cemeteries and the Airborne Museum of Saint-Mère-Église. Another tour concentrates on places of particular significance to the role Canada played in the conflict.
