The first time we tried we arrived from Newhaven on a Tuesday afternoon. It is closed on a Tuesday. We were staying overnight so thought that perhaps... More

The park is peaceful in honour of those who gave their lives on that fateful 19th August 1942. The Dieppe-Canada Monument has the names of the people and events linking Canada and Normandy. A huge loss of Canadian soldiers happened... More

Great free little museum. Friendly staff, uniforms and models to see. Worth a visit, will only take about 20 minutes, but some great information.

Really good museum but sadly we only got there 30 minutes before they closed. It gave everyone a good appreciation of Operation Jubilee.

An old 19th century theater located near the Dieppe beach has been converted into a museum displaying artifacts and showing a movie which explains the 1942 Dieppe Raid. Artifacts in display cases include handguns, bullets, helmets, uniforms, coins from soldier's pockets, a scarf with a map of the area, and lots of pictures showing war dead on the beach/street, burials,...

Fascinating, very moving and in a stunning building. Beware of lunchtime closing if you only have limited time in the town!

A beautiful little park at the base of the Chateau holds a lovely Memorial for all the Canadian Soldiers who sadly lost their life. So serene.
