Magnificent coastal views, magnificent scenery and steeped in history. We salute the bravery who fought and gave their lives. Arrowmanche and Gold beach where the British landed, visit the museum amazing to see the remains of the floating harbour... Tony UK

I found the experience at St Laurent underwhelming. I believe this is where the tour buses take you to see 'Omaha Beach'. There is one statue, one sculpture, a couple touristy restaurants and a touristy museum. Better to spend your time at the American Cemetery...More

We visited the Basse-Normandie region initially to visit the invasion beaches. My father landed there on D-Day so it was sort of a pilgrimage. We enjoyed the trip and discovered just how amazing the entire area of the Calvados & Manche are. The people were...More
