School Trip

With over 40 years of experience in the teaching profession and more than 25 years experience here at Domaine de la Hamberie we are confident we can offer something for every school or college and over a broad spectrum of the curriculum. Below is a suggested tour based on a previous school visit. It only suggests a few of the things on offer in the area such as Falaise Castle or Pegasus Bridge and longer stays might like to include things like the local leisure pool or even Festyland.

The Memorial Centre in Caen is such a large venue and hugely important that it really requires a full day to visit. Here is a link to the educational resources available there.


Monday Catch the ferry from Portsmouth in the early afternoon to arrive at Domaine de la Hamberie in the evening to be met by the owners.

Tuesday Breakfast followed by a walk to the local bakery to buy baguettes for the packed lunches. 
In the morning a trip to the Bayeux Tapestry is followed by lunch in Bayeux, then a visit to the Bayeux War Museum and British Cemetery.
