Ideas for Things to See and Do On Your Way Here or On Your Way Home

NORMANDY BEACHES

 

On your way to or from Cherbourg or Caen Ouistreham, if you have an interest in the Normandy Beach D-Day Landings of 1944, why not visit the "Battery" at Longues-sur-Mer, then go on to Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery.

 

We visited in December 2011, hence the warm jackets and bobble hats! In June, at the time of the Anniversary of the Landings, the small roads around these historical sites can get quite congested but if you visit in July and August they are less so, but still quite busy.

 

The "big guns" at Longues sur Mer can be accessed up close, obviously children should be supervised as these bunkers are over 60 years old, but are still in a magnificent condition considering the attack they came under. Only one of the gun emplacements was destroyed by the bombardment from the Americans, British and Allied Forces which goes to show how well engineered they were.

The American Cemetery above Omaha Beach is worth a visit even if your children are young, the scale of it is quite impressive and obviously very moving. You can walk around the cemetery and visitor centre and there are good views of the beach itself. The car park is huge!

Along the road there is also a cemetery for the German soldiers at La Cambe, near Bayeux.
