We scheduled a tour from Paris and while the tour company isn't significant, it was worth the time (6am-7pm) to do this. It was probably one of the most humbling and moving experiences we have ever had. To stand on those beaches where our young men tried desperately to reach shore, to stand at the top of those hills where... More

Whether you're passing through, making this place a stopover or even your destination there are plenty of things to see and do. For obvious reasons it's a busy place with many D-Day tourists making up the bulk of the visitors. There are plenty of bars and restaurants up and down the main streets to keep everyone pretty well fed and... More

The beaches seem to go on forever. Hard to imagine the horror that they once all witnessed - they seem so beautiful and peaceful now (at least in the fall). Really liked the sculpture on Omaha Beach.

One of the best things we did on our trip to France. It was very humbling. History came alive. This is such a beautiful area, too.

Lower Normandy is a northern French region bordering the English Channel. It’s known for its rocky coastline of white chalk cliffs, plus World War II D-Day sites like Omaha Beach. The Côte Fleurie (Flower Coast) features the chic seaside resort town of Deauville, with its sandy beach and belle epoque villas. The iconic island of Mont Saint-Michel is topped by... More

The vast expanse of Omaha Beach is the same seen in photographs & films over the decades. Terrifying enough. But I have memory of the cliffs leading up to the fortifications & guns above Utah Beach, cliffs the American Rangers had to scale after the German bunkers & artillery had been bombed. The site is pockmarked by craters & damaged... More

We rented a car and did a self guided tour. There are many good guide books out there but we used Rick Steve's Normandy guide which started in Arromanches and headed west. It took us about 7 hours to follow all the recommended stops at Utah and Omaha beaches. If you want to see Gold, Juno and Sword beaches it... More

If you are in this area if France it's worth taking the time, we visited Sword, Juno and Gold where we also saw the remains of the Mulberry bridge and the museum at Arramanch. Here you can also see a section of the road that was built to bring supplies from the piers on the harbour. An amazing feat of... More

It's 72 years since my father went up Gold Beach and we finally visited the region based at Bayeux. The merchandise in Arromanches shops was embarrassingly crass. Overall I wished I'd not bothered
