Archipelago
“This is a gorgeous little island with no cars set in an archipelago. Spend a day walking around, lying on the beach, eating seafood, watching the boats. Catch the boat from Granville. Must do!”

Beach
“No D-day trip would be complete without a visit to the haunting Omaha Beach. Best earlier and later in the day when the coach parties have gone and you get to appreciate even more the scale of the endeavour and the sacrifices made on that fateful day.”

Cemetery
“Le cimetière américain de Colleville sur Mer est situé au sommet de la falaise dominant la célèbre plage d’Omaha Beach. Nul n’entre dans le cimetière de Colleville par hasard, il faut en faire la démarche volontaire. Le visiteur se prépare pour aborder attentif et recueilli un morceau des États-Unis en France. Au-delà du Bâtiment de Réception, se trouve un magnifique Mémorial en demi-cercle au centre duquel une statue de bronze représente “l’Esprit de la jeunesse américaine s’élevant des flots”. Dans le prolongement du bassin où se reflète le Mémorial s’étire l’allée centrale desservant les 10 carrés de tombes où reposent 9 387 soldats dont 4 femmes et 307 inconnus.”

Museum
“If you are a fashion aficionado then the Christian Dior Museum is a must see whilst in Granville. The Belle Époque mansion was originally the Dior family home before they moved to Paris and continued as a sea-side holiday home (and a retreat during the ravages of the First World War) until the Diors were forced to sell it to the town of Granville in 1932. There are magnificent sea views from the cliff top and in a clear day you can see the islands of Chausey and even Jersey. Perfume workshops are held in September. Open: May to October Address: 1 Rue d'Estouteville, 50400 Granville, France”

Zoo
“Whatever your feeling about zoos, take a picnic and enjoy a day here where the wild animals have plenty of space to roam about. Our grandchildren particularly enjoy the antics of the penguins in their pool - they seem to know when to show off! The zoo is fairly level for pushchairs and extends both sides of the main road.”

Beach
“Utah Beach is one of the two American landing zones in Normandy. This beach was created by British general Bernard Montgomery who wished to establish a beachhead directly in the Cotentin peninsula in order to capture Cherbourg faster, because of its deep water harbor and its major logistic importance.”

Stazione ferroviaria
“Avranches is a beautiful place that boasts the Mont-St-Michel Scriptorial. There are many ancient parchments on display in the scriptorial. There are also a lot of kids’ activities to keep the younger ones amused. A must-see BEFORE the Mont itself as it gives a very good history the development of the Mont which gives a better understanding of what you’re looking at whilst on the site. Although the cathedral where Henry II did penance for his part in the assassination of Thomas Becket no longer exists (it was destroyed during the French Revolution) its ground plan can still be seen in situ. The views over the ocean from where the original front doors stood are spectacular. A quiet reflective place. One of the large sarcophagi from the cathedral excavated in the 1970s can be seen in the Scriptoral (there is no sign in the Scriptorial itself to indicate this!!). Lots and lots of eateries. Your choice!!!”

Beach
“The WWII Normandy landing beaches need no introduction. Your choice as to where you go. Lots of different museums. Re-enactments are usually carried out around the annual anniversary of the landing date (6th June 1944). All very sobering. Lamentably much of historic Normandy was destroyed in the process - mainly from Allied bombings prior to and during the Landings. ”
