We had a whistle stop tour of this bridge where we learned the history behind it and had a moment to watch the traffic pass across it. Unfortunately there were no boats passing through so we didn't see the bridge in action.

Crossing the bridge stretching over the river you can only imagine the hard fights occoured during the first days of D-Day on June 1944. The real bridge, anyway, is kept in the small museum next to the road.

The museum was very well done. From the moment we stepped in we were greeted by very friendly staff. There museum was very informative and appealed to not just us as adults but the children too.

This is a replica bridge. The museum has the real one. Nice to walk on it but that is all really. Go into the cafe to look at the memorabilia but only have a coffee. Food not worth buying and over priced. Def go museum

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?
