Never understood much about this until I went.Blew my mind.Amazing - Americans or not - we wouldn't have won the war without this feat of genius. Designed, built and towed by the British. 2 made, one for us and one for the Americans. Ours was put together properly and it stood the storms and whatever was thrown at it and... More

Arromanches is just a wonderful place to visit. This is where we stayed for our Normandy/Day trip and loved it. This harbor was crucial for the rest of the invasion and incredible history here (and 2 small musueums worth seeing)

In May, in ~ 60 min timeframe, I had here rain, sunshine and ice rain knocking my hoodie. The place is worth to see but skipped the Museums and just shooted pictures.

Historicly one of the most important places of the Second World War and a must see. Nice clean village with lots to see besides Mulberry Harbour.

This stands as a stark reminder of what our parents, grandparents had to endure to overcome German aggression, and standing in this spot is a moving experience and one that should be experienced by all who value the sacrifices made by others

Even in Asnelle where we were lodged there were ample pieces of this engineering feat showing themselves fully at low tide, and hiding quite well at high tides. But in Arromanches you can literally go up and touch them as they lay on top of the sand or partially buried after the 71 years since they were created. It's an... More

Parking is unusually payable, up a steep hill and awkward to find. However, you need to see the remains of the Mulberry Harbour to appreciate this monumental engineering project. The museum is quite claustrophobic as it is relatively small with a large number of visitors and it can be quite confusing trying to work out which display is for which... More

It all seems unreal but when you stand on this beach you cannot help it. You imagine yourself being on that beach in the 2nd world war on 6th of June 1944. It is amazing what the allied did and what it has ment to the world we live in today.

The remains of the Mulberry Harbor can still be seen. Plenty of shops and restaurants. A pleasant walk can be had along the sea wall. Sandy beach if you want to have a sit down with your lunchtime snack.

Three of us walked down the ramp towards the beach, as we cleared the land the enormity of the Mulberry came into view. I'd read and heard it was the size of Dover port, they weren't wrong. Stunning view from headland to headland along the horizon. The amount of work that was put into this structure must have involved thousands... More
