This is the proposed itinerary. Bold type indicates where we hope to be camping. Princess Vince thinks that one day in London is enough, so I've moved the ferry from France to the next day - which happens to be Bastille Day - This will give us a stopover on the way from Cannes to Paris....otherwise it's a really long haul. We may be able to fit in the Normandy Invasion Beaches along with the Bayeaux Tapestry (depicting the Battle of Hastings in 1066) or go via Chartres Cathedral, built by the Knights Templar with the most amazing stained glass.

As far as campsites go I have reserved the one's I can, the rest work on a first come first served basis...which is good (as we can be more flexible) and bad as we'll be arriving late on most days rather than early. Most of them have bars, restaurants, swimming pools etc
