Explore the Main British Forces D-Day Sites in Normandy - Private Tour from Bayeux

Embark on a vibrant excursion to the main British Forces D-Day sites! Departing from Bayeux, this private tour will take you to the historic Normandy coastal battlefield grounds. On June 6, 1944, the allied troops landed on the Normandy beaches, marking the beginning of a fierce and deadly battle that would culminate in the liberation of France a few months later.

Pick up in Bayeux or Surrounding Area

Enjoy the convenience of being picked up directly from your accommodation in Bayeux or the surrounding area. Our English-speaking guide/driver will greet you and provide an overview of the itinerary and program for the day. As a private tour, we offer flexibility to accommodate your specific requests, ensuring a personalized experience within the allocated time.

Discover the Major D-Day British Forces Sites

Our expert guides are well-versed in the region and will show you the most significant landmarks linked to the British Forces on D-Day. Here's a selection of the main sites that you can visit:

British Normandy Memorial

Visit the brand new British Memorial, inaugurated on June 6, 2019, to honor the fallen under British Command. This memorial overlooks "Gold Beach" and features columns listing the names of over 22,000 men and women, including British soldiers, marines, and airmen, as well as those from other countries who fought under British Command.

Pegasus Bridge

Explore the iconic Pegasus Bridge, captured by the 6th British Airborne Division to secure the left flank of the invasion. Learn about the daring operation and the successful capture of both bridges, accompanied by fascinating stories of courage and victory.

Merville Battery Museum

Step into the Merville Battery Museum, a fortified area of the German defense system along the Normandy coastline. Discover the intense battle that took place as the British 9th Parachute Battalion successfully captured the battery, neutralizing its threat to Sword Beach.

Sword Beach

Experience Sword Beach, one of the three landing beaches for the Anglo-Canadian troops. Learn about the British 8th Brigade and the Commandos of the 1st Special Service Brigade who landed here, as well as the successful clearing of the beach by noon.

Gold Beach

Explore Gold Beach, the center beach of the Normandy Invasion. Witness the landing area where the British Second Army, specifically the British 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division, carried out their assault and achieved key objectives, including the capture of the Longues-sur-Mer battery.

Arromanches

Discover the significance of Arromanches les Bains, a vital location for the artificial port installation during D-Day. Learn about the Hampshire Regiment's role in liberating the village and the subsequent arrival of the first buildings of the artificial port. Once in Arromanches, why not also visit the brand new D-Day museum that re-opened in April 2023. The D-Day Museum in Arromanches, created in the aftermath of the Second World War, was the first museum to commemorate the Landings. It's main goal is to bring to life the history of the Landings and, in particular, the construction of the Mulberry B artificial harbor, the remains of which can still be seen outside the museum. 

Longues-sur-Mer

Visit Longues-sur-Mer, the location of a formidable coastal battery built by the Germans. Witness the remains of the battery and learn about the intense naval battle that ensued on D-Day as British, French, and U.S. forces fought to capture it.

Immerse yourself in the history and heroism of the British Forces during D-Day with our expertly guided private tour. Experience an unforgettable journey through the iconic sites that shaped the outcome of World War II. Contact our travel advisors to customize your tour and create lasting memories in Normandy.
