I felt very privileged to walk across the bridge, to see where the 3 gliders landed and the story of Major Howard's brave men when taking the bridge and securing the Caen canal. The canal was a strategic and important part of stopping German supplies...More

Busily on our way to this campsite so didn't realise what we were driving over for a moment. Interesting construction, lots of tourists. Bars around it to enjoy a drink at and to remember why we are enjoying ourselves here today

The first museum we did on a week long tour of the Normandy battlefields. Loved it, and the story was unbelievable and audacious. This museum and site is a MUST DO. Walking through the exhibits strikes an emotional cord of what heroism existed in WW2

The landing site for the 3 gliders is so small we just couldn't believe the audacity of the plan and the incredible accuracy of the glider pilots. Good to see the floral tributes to the fallen still respected and in place.

A snapshot of history and nothing compares to seeing the site and reading about the events that took place there. The area is well signed, plenty of information, beautifully kept and very clean. Include this stop on your tour.

We visited Pegasus Bridge and were lucky enough to see it open to it’s full extent for a huge private yacht to motor through! It’s quite a spectacle when it opens up and although it’s not the original bridge it gives a good idea of...More
