It's hard to believe that anything went totally right on D-Day, but the gliders landed here feet from the bridge, and the soldiers did their jobs as planned. Just seeing the bridge and the well-marked landing site nearby added a level of understanding that the...More

A most poignant location provided you know your history. As a coup de main it doesn't get more impressive than this. A terrific museum nearby and a chance for coffee and croissants with Arlette Gondree at her cafe.

This was one of the best tours we did in Normandy. Our guide was informative and clearly knew all about Pegasus bridge. She was personal, citing stories of her own meetings with the war veterans including snippets of information that aren’t detailed in the books....More

A very well thought out museum which explains what happened coming up to DDay and the fight to keep the bridge from the Axis powers.

We stopped off at the bridge at 7am after getting off a ferry. It was quiet and peaceful with mist rising off the river. No one else was around. We were able to walk across the bridge and read the memorials and see the first...More

The Pegasus bridge museum was brilliant! We would highly recommend it as it explains clearly and concisely how the D-day landings developed and how the British contributed throughout. Very moving and incredibly interesting! We were 7 adults but I think the cinema film, uniform displays,...More

Incredibly interesting and humbling place to visit, as with most memorials. Needed longer but we were on a flying visit.

As a Canadian, I knew, of course, of the heroics of our troops at Juno Beach, but who knew of their involvement around other beaches? Pegaus Bridge was taken by British Paratroopers, but the Canadian presence throughout Normandy was quite a surprise. This site is...More

It depends on how interested you are in WW2 but The Bridge and museum are a must as is the Cafe.We had a nice ham roll and coffee there. Also the War cemetery at Ranville. Hope this helps?
