School language trips to
Normandy, France

A haven of rugged coastlines, maritime towns and historic treasures, Normandy encapsulates everything that’s special about rural France.

Known for its heavy history, the region’s long sweep of beaches and pastoral villages make it all the more endearing. You'll find a collection of moving cemeteries and memorials sitting along the D-Day beaches, whilst the iconic Bayeux Tapestry hangs in all its glory for history buffs to admire its intricate, medieval embroidery. Seeking out the area’s best kept secrets, you’ll experience the cultural soul of this picturesque corner of France.

Get to grips with the local lingo amongst the lively markets and enjoy a taste of life ‘à la française’. Pick up some new vocabulary at a traditional cheese dairy and discover the ins and outs of producing this tasty food. Then soak up Normandy’s enchanting art scene and typically French culture in the fishing village of Honfleur, where ports don’t get any prettier than this beauty. Simply put, to overlook a school language trip to Normandy is to overlook perfection.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you DBS (formerly CRB) check your drivers?

    As part of our coach audits, we request that all UK coach drivers are DBS checked by their employer prior to driving on one of our tours. We can request confirmation of your specific driver’s compliance if deemed necessary.
  • Are seatbelts provided on foreign coaches?

    This depends on the country where you are visiting and their local laws. However, we will always endeavour to use coach companies who use coaches fitted with seatbelts.

  • Do you provide risk assessments for hotels?

    Rayburn Tours have individual audits which are completed on every hotel/accommodation centre which we use. We are more than happy for you to see this should you wish. Our audits cover fire safety, means of escape and general safety.

  • What should be included in my risk assessment?

    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions. Specific requirements are available from your Local Authority.
