Walking across the Original Pegasus Bridge and seeing the bullet holes and shell-scars gives only a fleeting insight of the terror that Major Howard's young men of 6th Airborne must have felt as they captured it to secure the exit from the Beaches and hold back any German Reinforcements. The bridge has been replaced by a more modern structure but the original rests beside the excellent museum a short distance away from the landing site. The museum, including the bridge and other large, outdoor exhibits can be toured in a couple of hours but half a day would be more realistic. We were disappointed with the Cafe Gonville, which seems to exist on its reputation as the first house to be liberated on 6 June. It was dingy and expensive - the little Bistro across the road was more inviting and the prices more reasonable.
