Peaceful walk

Very peaceful walk thru a garden like setting. Right next to the Normandy Museum and British cemetery in Bayeux so if you're in the area, go to all three.

Very peaceful walk through a beautiful, quiet setting. Located near the British War Cemetery, the Reporters Memorial is unique in its presentation. Well worth your visit.

Peaceful but sombre garden with memorials listing reporters from all over the world who died while doing their jobs, often in war zones. The garden is just over the road from the British cemetary. In a way it's quite personal because these are the people who risk their lives to tell us what is happening in the world, and not... More

This was also a surprise, as we walked to the British Cemetery, we first walked through the Reporters Memorial. So individual. And as the years went back, the nationalities of the reporters changed. The Vietnam War, etc. The last, actually the first year was, I believe 1944. These people were killed. So many.

Within walking distance of the war museum and the Bayeux War Cemetery. This quiet, respectful memorial honours those reporters that lost their lives while reporting on news/events of the time. Marble monuments are erected by year with reporters names engraved. Some names maybe familiar and some may not. Wonderful tribute to reporters from all over the world. Definitely worth a... More

Absolutely worth visiting this beautiful memorial to those who paid the ultimate price to bring us the truth. Reporters without borders. Take your children, may help give them perspective on world events.

Just outside the Battle of Normandy Museum, this quiet grassy path has marble monuments inscribed with the names of the reporters that have died doing their job of reporting. It is a grim reminder of the price paid for their dedication.

The monuments ercted in the name of reporters killed/died in action was very evocative. Thie place is close to the Battle museum and the British cemetery. The grounds could be slightly better maintained. There are a few places to sit and pondr about the famous and not so famous names inscribed into the pillars on which each year is engraved... More

Tells a little known bit of history. Suffers a bit, given the proximity to the memorials to epic sacrifices (British Museum, Battle of Normandy Museum). If you know a journalist, or have an interest in this subject, it could make your trip.

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...
