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.

...those who went...just so we know...and who gave their full measure...took no lives...that the following generations may one day see...the futility of war...and the crime it is to start one

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.

The reporters (war correspondents) memorial is a series of stone vertical slabs with the names of deceased reporters starting with 1944 to present day, hence sadly a living memorial. It is an interesting short stroll and notice the names on the slabs. You can tell where the war was by the names. For instance the 60s and 70s have many... More

I walked through here late one evening as I strolled through Bayeux. It is a beautiful setting with a good tribute to reporters killed covering the world. Take your time and soak it all in, then be sure to visit the memorial on the main road before crossing the street to the British Cemetery. A special way to spend time.

Enjoyed the walk through this tranquil garden area. Would have enjoyed more had it not started to rain profusely. My husband and I would go back weather permitting.

This memorial and garden highlights an often overlooked aspect of was - the reporting of it. the garden is lovely and is very easy to find as it is right near the huge british memorial which is itself directly opposite the british cemetery. All of this is just a short walk from the town centre, and next door to the... More
