This year's D-Day anniversary celebrations have been a hauntingly poignant reminder of the sacrifices the armed forces made for us and future generations to come.
To pay homage to those that fought on the beaches, GRJ independent has created a unique opportunity for you to visit the landing sites of the allied forces on June 6th, 1944.
This itinerary has been specially designed by our expert tailor-made travel team who have experienced contacts, including professional battlefield guides and military historians. Each of the excursions and hotels has been hand-selected, making sure they live up to your high standards, and ours!
As the little sister to Great Rail Journeys and Rail Discoveries, holidays by rail are in our blood - we know the fastest and most scenic routes across Europe, and many of us have experienced them firsthand so you know your journey and sightseeing will run smoothly. And while this 4-day holiday is tried and tested, we pride ourselves on creating custom-made options. So if you want to upgrade your accommodation, spend a couple of extra days exploring, or continue your adventure elsewhere - just let us know and we'll get right on it! We work to your specifications and budget, not the other way around.
Day 1 - Travel on the Eurostar from London St Pancras to Paris. From here, catch the local rail service to the medieval city of Bayeux and check into your 4-Star hotel.
