Day one

Board an early afternoon Eurostar service from London St. Pancras to Paris (exact times will be indicated on travel documents), arriving at Paris Gard du Nord 2 hrs 15 mins later. A coach will transfer you to the three star superior Hotel Du Vieux Marché or four star Mercure Champs de Mars, in Rouen.

Day two

Rouen is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe and this morning you will have a walking tour. You see all the major sights of this city including where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake and the cathedral, immortalised by Claude Monet, with the tombs of Richard the Lionheart and William the Conqueror’s grandfather. During the afternoon you visit Fécamp, home of the liqueur Bénédictine and have a tour of the Bénédictine Palace itself.

Day three

You’ll visit Bayeux and its world famous tapestry. The embroidery is extremely delicate and this is arguably the best known relic we have of the Middle Ages. You also visit nearby Gold Beach, made famous on D-Day, then Arromanches with its museum and remnants of the Mulberry harbour.

Day four

Today it’s the port of Honfleur. Its old harbour is surrounded by a waterfront of tall, pastel-coloured 18th century houses and fish restaurants. The intricate maze of streets are lined by the traditional half-timbered buildings so typical of provincial France. There is also a museum dedicated to Eugène Boudin, the forerunner of Impressionist art.

Day five

After a leisurely start to the day, the coach will return you to Paris to take an afternoon service to London St. Pancras International (exact time will be indicated on travel documents).

Our tour guide Kay was fantastic. She was always there to help at the right moment and had time for everyone in the group. We also had a great driver, Franky, who was helpful and very kind to the more elderly members of the group. The included excursions were excellent and there seemed to be something to suit everyone. My son really enjoyed the Bayeaux tapestry and the trip to Arromanches and the museum there. My husband thought Honfleur was a beautiful town, and thoroughly enjoyed the unexpected bonus we had on our last morning of an optional river cruise on the Seine in Paris. Our whole family enjoyed our Normandy break and we are certainly planning to book another holiday with Riviera soon.

Seeing the Bayeux Tapestries and the Mulberry Harbour Museum where the highlights, but everything was interesting and the Tour Manger was the best I've ever had on an organised trip - friendly and helpful, well organised, sensible and perfect for the type of group we were.
