“The quality of communication was exceptional and Sammy answered all of my questions quickly and I always felt I could get in touch if I needed to.

Travelbound were truly a breath of fresh air given the appalling experience we had with a competitor and you have renewed my faith in travel companies.

The whole process was excellent and the standards far exceeded my expectations. The quality you provided has persuaded me to run this trip for another year rather than passing it on to a colleague. Thank you!”

Normandy for schools


Broaden your students’ global perspective and encourage cultural exchange

Beyond its historical and cultural significance, Normandy provides a platform for interactive learning that extends beyond the classroom. The region offers hands-on experiences, such as visiting traditional cider farms, learning about the local culinary heritage through cheese-making demonstrations or exploring the architectural wonders of landmarks like Mont-Saint-Michel. Students gain a tangible understanding of art, architecture, and the environment, allowing them to witness the beauty of medieval structures and the intricacies of local artistry.

Normandy’s proximity to the UK makes it an accessible destination for school trips, minimizing travel time and ensuring more time for exploration and learning. The blend of enriching historical sites, cultural immersion, and diverse educational experiences makes Normandy an appealing choice for schools. The region’s ability to combine historical significance with diverse educational opportunities not only supports curriculum-based learning but also provides students with a broader, more enriched perspective of the world they live in.
