Leger Holidays Battlefield Tours - November 2019


GoCruise – 19th November 2019

 

The following list shows the Leger Holidays Battlefield Tours with departures between February 2020 and July 2021, and further dates will no doubt be added by as time goes on. Unless indicated to say that a tour is ‘by Air’, then you will travel on one of Leger Holidays fleet of comfortable Silver Service coaches. On some dates on certain tours there is the opportunity to upgrade to their Luxuria coaches for a supplement. There are hundreds of convenient local joining points around the UK to choose from, many of which are free of charge, while some others have a small supplement to pay. Just ask me for details.

Please note that I always talk about the number of ‘nights’ on a holiday, whereas many operators, including Leger Holidays, talk in ‘days’ Therefore if I say a holiday is for 3 nights, the Leger Holidays brochure will say 4 days. Hotels vary from 2 to 4 star, depending on where they are, and there are sometimes options to book a higher grade. They all include continental breakfast each morning, although a few include additional meals, and of course several key visits are included.

Obviously the places you visit will vary, depending on the tour you pick, but here are just a few names picked from the hundreds which Leger can take you to – Pegasus Bridge, Arromanches, Bayeux War Cemetery, Ranville War Cemetery (I took the picture above when I visited), Menin Gate, Last Post Ceremony, in Flanders Field Museum, Polijze French Cemetery, Verdun Battlefield, 101st Airborne Museum, D-Day Museum, Overlord Museum, Arnhem Bridge, Gold, Juno & Sword Beaches, Bremen U-Boat Bases, Eder Dam, Jersey War Tunnels, Volga River Boat Trip, Hanoi, Ha Long, Gettysburg, Arlington Cemetery, Rorke’s Drift and many more.
