It's worth reading 'Pegasus Bridge' by Stephen Ambrose before going if you don't know it's significance. The bridge was quite moving to see and there's an interesting little museum, cafe and memorial nearby.

An accessible attraction to visit - and one of such historical significance. Just beyond the bridge itself is a moving memorial to the troops who bravely captured the bridge.

Do not miss the museum. It is somewhat small, but it is one of the best in the area. The bridge has been kept as well as a glider.

This is a museum dedicated to the British Airborne troops who captures many of the bridges east of Sword Beach on D-Day. The bridge at the museum was purchased by the museum and was named in honor of the Pegasus horse on the patches of the soldiers. There is a nice museum on site, the bridge and a British glider....

One of many, many D-Day related museums in this part of France, but this one is vividly brought to life because it so effectively tells its story through human experience and the individual soldiers who were involved. The bond between the museum and those who served is in evidence at all times, and that's the heart of its success, more... More

Reading of General Howard's assault and the liberation of the area on the simple memorials around the bridge. Worth popping into café/museum standing by the bridge - the first house liberated by the allies' assault. Good to pop in for a few minutes on the way to/from the Caen ferry.

The bridge itself has been replaced and the original is 'in' the nearby museum - outside actually. There is plenty of information at the site and much much more in the museum which is only a few euros. Car parking is easy. Well worth a visit

On a P&O cruise we did this trip to the British Normandy beaches, Pegasus Bridge, Arromanches and the Longues sur Mer gun battery. A truly thought provoking and inspiring day. What those soldiers went through and how brave they were. Our guide was outstanding and we learnt so much, saw some amazing things, also were able to reflect. Well done... More
