Band of Brothers UK Tour

Follow in the footsteps of Easy Company, US 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division as they prepare for the D-Day invasion of Normandy in June 1944. Join one of our expert battlefield historians on our one-day ‘Band of Brothers’ UK tour.

The US 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment established their headquarters at Littlecote House near Hungerford. Easy Company, the Band of Brothers, were billeted in the Wiltshire village of Aldbourne and trained in the surrounding area.

In the morning we explore Aldbourne taking in the local landmarks associated with the Band of Brothers time in the village during their pre-invasion training. Following lunch, at one of Aldbourne’s English Country Public Houses, the tour visits Pentico Wood and Loves Copse, both of which were used by US 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment for extensive training prior to D-Day. It culminates at Littlecote House, now a hotel and also famous for being the house where Henry VIII courted Jane Seymour as well as the headquarters of the US 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Here your tour comes to an end with an opportunity to take refreshments before departing for your onward journey.
