We know because we were caught in a traffic jam on our approach. Very cool event in history and nice to see it still stands. Congrats to the Brits!

We always bring our battlefield tour guests here first, as this is the beginning of D-Day and the best place from which to begin telling the story of June 6, 1944 and the Normandy invasion. Such an historic place.

This place is awesome and at the heart of Airborne forces the new bridge and the adjacent museum where the original bridge is displayed is well worth a visit Great exhibits and interactive displays tell the DDay story

We did not plan to explore the British or Canadian sites but had time on our way from Honfleur to Bayeux. So we went to the site of Major Howard's objective. The original bridge was on site along with excellent examples of artillery and armor. Definitely worth a stop.

I have been to the bridge a few times over the years, perhaps if it was just another bridge it may not have a lot interst but due to its historical part on D Day it's a must, lots to see and do in the area

Lovely to see the area and how important it was in the battles and war. The current bridge is new as they have widened the canal, but the original bridge is in the museum over the road. well worth a visit.

I liked the diorama showing how the gliders landed around a large area beyond the bridges. Seeing the original bridge and para/glider artifacts was great. Worth knowing about how important it was that the British take the 2 bridges (over river and canal) so that the invasion beachhead couldn't be more easily contained so they had to "hold until relieved"...

So, there I was, tootling along on my way from Ypres to Bayeux when I saw the sign pointing to Ranville and Ouistreham. Remembering the great scenes of the assault on the Pegasus Bridge in "The Longest Day", I turned off and drove to the bridge. Absolutely brilliant! The rain cleared and the sun came out and I was able... More
