Grand Voyage of Celebration and Commemoration
The Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and 68th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, this unique grand voyage celebrates and commemorates two important events etched in Britain’s 20th century history. Landscapes that played starring roles in stirring epics, the homes where literary heroes penned immortal words, castles and splendid stately homes with verdant gardens illustrating Britain’s romance between heritage and horticulture – the British Isles is a wonderful opening act! Act two takes you to ‘Hitler’s Europe’ – Operation Overlord, the defence of the ‘bridge too far’, Dunkirk and the ‘miracle of the little ships’! Today charming medieval towns, vibrant capital cities, and islands bestowed with the gifts of Mother Nature are your European headlines.
