Adrian Ridley-Jones was an excellent guide who in two days showed us so many things we would never have found on our own. In particular he took us to our uncles grave in Hermanville cemetary which was a very moving experience for us.

I suggest layers that are wind and waterproof and stout shoes. The weather varies and can be sunny one minute and windy or raining soon after. Layers allow you to adjust according to the conditions.
