The stretch of the Norman coast, with its code names Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword, is famous for the D-Day landings of Allied troops that took place here on 6th June 1944.
There really isn't anything that compares to stepping foot on the beaches where the allied troops landed, making this region a perfect destination for school History tours.
