History School Tours to France

Tour Introduction

At Anglia Tours our team of dedicated Tour Consultants and highly experienced guides will support you in building a bespoke tour that will engage and inspire your students, whilst ensuring you get the maximum educational benefit and on tour support to ensure you can sit back and enjoy the trip yourself.

France offers a huge range of opportunities for learning. Our expert Anglia guides have a range of specialist knowledge that can take you from the Battle of Waterloo, through the French Revolution and on to the wars of the 20th Century.

If you are studying the French Revolution our Paris: Ancien Regime to Revolution tour will take you around iconic sites of the city that tell the dramatic story of how the Ancien Regime was brought to an end.

A fully guided two day tour to Waterloo explores all the key locations such as Wellington’s headquarters and Hougoumont Farm, where your students can understand the theme of firepower and tactics over time.

Our wide range of Battlefield guided tours gives you the opportunity to study all aspects of the Great War in as much detail as is needed for your students. Popular themes such as surgery & treatment, the changing nature of warfare, the impact of battle, literature and remembrance are covered and if you prefer to take your students off the beaten track our expert guides have an in depth knowledge of the Somme that will allow you to visit lesser known sites of real importance.

If you are studying aspects of the Second World War our specialist guides will cover the stories of courage and heroism, defeat and success in both Dunkirk and Normandy.

The range of opportunities in France is so rich for History studies that some groups choose to cover more than one topic, developing their own bespoke multi centre tour, such as The Somme & Normandy or Agincourt & the Somme. Speak to your Tour Consultant if you would like to cover more during your stay in France.
