During a pleasant tour on board your or our vehicle, our guide will introduce you to the unmissable sites of Operation Dynamo. He will also take you to shooting the shooting locations of the movie 'Dunkirk' directed by Christopher Nolan, released in July 2017. During the two hour tour, we will stop at the following memorial places:
- The evacuation beaches
The beautiful, wide sandy beaches are very peaceful nowadays. Things were quite different in the spring 1940. Imagine being a soldier of the BEF, hoping desperatly to climb on board one of the Dunkirk Little Ships to escape the 'Hell of Dunkirk'...
- The port
The East Mole in the port was the point where most of the soldiers were evacuated. We'll make a stop at an impressive bunker, built by the Germans during the occupation, to see the preserved part of the original East Mole.
- British Memorial and Cemetery
The impressive British Memorial commemorates the memory of the 4528 soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force who died during 1940 and who have no known grave. Next to the memorial is a cemetery of 810 graves of British soldiers. Most of them were killed defending the perimeter of Dunkirk during the evacuation operations in May-June 1940.
