Normandy offers a fascinating selection of visits for both primary and secondary schools. History, including WW2 museums and landing beaches, Food Technology visits and a wide variety of Cross-curriculum visits make this a very rewarding destination.
Visits to working farms and small artisan workshops are the particular highlight of the Normandy trip for our schools. Many famous culinary specialities, such as Camembert cheese and the cider brandy Calvados, are produced in the area; popular visits include the Biscuiterie Les Sables d'Asnelles, Boulangerie Le Fournil, and Manoir d'Apreval Cidery in Honfleur.
