Dunkirk to D-Day battlefield tour - DAY 1

Dunkirk to D-Day battlefield tour

commences at Lille station in France where you will be greeted by one of our guide’s. However, alternative group travel can be made from London, either coach or V Class Mercedes. Later we travel through the channel ports of Dover and Folkstone notably crossing to Calais – France and continuing the Dunkirk to D-Day battlefield tour.

Our first stop will be a visit to the town of Cassel’s, in the Dunkirk region.

Next we make our way to Wornhoudt, where notably on May 28 1940, a fierce battle commenced between the British and German troops. Furthermore, as a result this lead to German Waffen SS troops completely overrunning the allied position. Meanwhile, it is here that you will discover about 80 British troops and 1 French soldier who were executed in the barn. Although this barbaric episode did not come to the fore until much later in the war.

We move on to Bray Dunes

which is synonymous with Dunkirk to D-Day battlefield tour. In fact this beach is the most poignant of the evacuation beaches and the one least changed. Furthermore, many soldiers took shelter in the sand dunes from the German bombardment.

In the town of Dunkirk, synonymous with D Day

is the Dunkirk Memorial. Notably, this memorial commemorates more than 4,500 British and Commonwealth service personnel.

In addition to this, you will discover the Blockhaus at Eperlecques which is the world’s largest bunker. Indeed this is a fascinating memorial to the slave labour that constructed the bunker complex. Furthermore it is here you are able to explore the V1 and V2 rocket factory and launch sites.

Dunkirk to D-Day battlefield tour - DAY 2

is one of the most strategically important locations in all of Europe. Additionally, this tight bottleneck through which ships travel between the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, it is not surprising to learn that the Straits of Dover became the scene of one of WWII heaviest artillery bombardments.

Atlantic Wall Museum:

At the open-air museum we explore the well preserved German Atlantic wall, including bunkers, trenchers and armaments.

Our next stop is Dieppe

where the first major allied attack onto mainland Europe took place. Notably, in August 1942 more than 6000 Canadians and British commandos attempted to test the feasibility of an amphibious assault. Specficially, here we will see the area where No. 3 Commando fought around Dieppe, Canadian landing beaches and the German defence bunkers that defeated them. Additionally our tour also includes the visit to the Dieppe War Cemetery.

At Bruneval

we visit the site of Operation Biting that was a daring Combined Operations raid on a German radar station and was the first British airborne raid of WWII and it is here we will have an overnight stay in La Harve.


The assault on the Merville Battery is a story of perseverance, bad luck and extraordinary courage that took place on D Day.

Next on our itinerary is a visit to Ranville Cemetery where we will see the war graves. In addition to this here we will locate the youngest and oldest graves including Den Brotheridge the first allied casualty of Dunkirk and D Day.

We take a drive to Pegasus Bridge

visiting the museum that has a replica horse gilder and the original bridge which is a superb photo opportunity. Furthermore, we then take a short walk to the Orne river and discover the events of the 6th June 1944.

Next we travel to Villers-Bocage

where British tanks attempted to break out of the Normandy beachhead but were destroyed by German panzer tanks under the command of ace Michael Wittman.

Our final stop on your D Day and Dunkirk tour is Tilly-Sur-Seulles

At this scene, the town was conquered and lost 23 times by the British army to the German Panzer where the village was completely destroyed. After this, we will have an overnight stay in Bayeux


on Sword Beach, again, this is a fascinating museum, devoted entirely to the Atlantic Wall.  In addition to this, from here we travel the short distance to Queen, Red, White and Green beaches where the allies assaulted a two mile stretch of Sword Beach.

At Juno Beach we follow the Canadian troop landings, also later we view Sword Beach and the Mulberry Harbour.
Additionalluy, our last stop of the day is the German cemetery at La Cambe which is where we will visit the grave of Panzer ace Michael Witteman followed by an overnight stay in Bayeux.
