Ok, so my old man is heading to Normandy next Tuesday. I've done a battle field tour down there and LOVED it, however I've forgotten the key place names...

Pegasus bridge is on the list, as are a few of the beaches. Any more suggestions? He'll be driving and should be there for about 4 days / 5 nights. He's planning on staying any where, with Trouville booked for one night.

Any help with sight's he would like to see and places to stay would be greatly appreciated.

Stayed in Caen on battlefield tour last year.
There is so much to see the list is endless, best to just pick from some of the suggestions

Merville Battery (I never actually saw this)

Omaha Beach

Coleville Sur mer (The American cemetery)

Sword Beach
The only VC won that day by Stan Hollis

Point Du Hoc

St mere Eglis and the airborne museum (American)

La Fiere
Where Charles De Glopper won the medal of honour (American)

Crisbecq gun battery

Arromanche and the museum/360 cinema

La Cambe German cemetery, the resting place of Michael Wittman

Ranville cemetery

Will have to find where you want to go and then google details
