A must visit to this Memorial (along the British Cemetery, as one other reviewer mentioned). Quiet (and very well-tended) park, well-spaced stone columns bearing the names of reporters (from all countries) killed in the course of their duty. A place where one can meditate in peace, and reflect on the ever present barbarians...

This memorial is located adjacent to the Battle of Normandy museum and across the street from the British cemetery. It is a memorial to the reporters who have lost their lives in war torn regions of the world over the past several decades. It stresses the fact that reporters have a dangerous job.

A dignified memorial to the reporters who loose their lives each year. Each name written on white stone tablets throughout grassy woodland paths. Thought provoking.

A lovely garden, grass path and the memorials are stone columns with the names of every reporter killed each year - 1979 being the only one that ha no name. We went Remembrance Sunday and James Foley's name is sadly already engraved on the column. Horrifyingly, some years have more than one column of names. Vive the City of Bayeux... More

This memorial was a revelation, the ability to pay homage to the named reporters through the decades of conflicts who had paid with their life for following their profession. Beautifully laid out memorial setting

Not much to see but names on pillars. Sad testimony to our increasing MURDER of reporters. When will we learn and how will be do so if we kill the witnesses.

A fitting tribute to those people who have lost their lives bringing the news to the world. A beautiful walk through a stunning garden with sitting areas provided to contemplate these people's contributions to the world.

An excellent memorial to Reporters, not just from WW1 and WW2, but up to the present day. Combine the Reporters Memorial with a trip to the Battle of Normandy Museum and the British Military cemetery. They are all within walking distance of one another.

The reporters / war correspondents who have died doing their jobs (something many probably take for granted) since 1944 are listed here (year by year) on large stone slabs going down a tree-lined path set back a little from the main road. Like the British Cemetery it is beautifully maintained and very peaceful.
