Unprecedented demand for Leger's Normandy battlefield tours

20 coaches will travel for a special edition of the brands D-Day Landings in Normandy tours, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the original invasion by the Allies.

Almost all 2024 tours to the region are fully booked, with over 1,000 customers travelling for the anniversary trip over the June 6th anniversary date.

The four- and five-day options take in historic sites connected to the invasion, from the Pegasus Bridge (and adjoining Memorial Museum) to Sword, Juno, Omaha, Utah and Gold beaches.

Each holiday sees guests accompanied by a specialist battlefield guide with unmatched knowledge of the events.

Leger Shearings Group's CEO, Liam Race, said the spike in demand is "no doubt prompted by the anniversary... we believe our tours are respectful, very poignant at times but extremely interesting and bring this important part of history to life."

All 2024 tours are sold out until July, with limited places throughout the remainder of the season until October this year, when prices start from £479 per person for the four-day options. 2025 options are on sale now from £459 per person.
