Dunkirk and Fortress Europe

The evacuation of more then 330,000 British and French troops from Dunkirk in May 1940 following the critical Battle of France was one of the turning points of the Second World War. Four long years of occupation followed, a period which included the construction of the Atlantic Wall to prevent any Allied return. Join us on a new version of this classic battlefield tour as we follow the fighting in France in 1940, the Miracle of Dunkirk and explore bunkers and V-weapon sites across northern France and Belgium.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.

We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
