I was actually surprised to see so much of the Mulberry Harbour is still there. It's not like it's in use or easily accessible, but there is quite a lot left. The sight in itself is not fantastic, but just think about what it really is an what happened here not so many your ago. We are still able to... 更多
Sadly it was raining heavily at time of our visit but we still checked out the shops and parks. I did not realise how many of the 'pontoons' still existed. It was also unfortunate the tide was high and even the closest of the pontoons were in the water.
In order to see these you need to go on a tour that stops at gold beach in the British sector. They are not on the American beaches and are totally awesome to see.
Saw this as part of our tour of Workd War II sites when we visited Arrowmanches. Even more impressive when you can find a video online showing the Mulberry Harbour in place at the height of the Allied activity.
It was fascinating to see the remains of the Mulberry Harbour, over 72 years since it was first built. At low tide, many of the large concrete structures are accessible.
We toured OMAHA Beach and the American Cemetery and then Mulberry Harbor. The Royal Navy Engineers and Marines certainly created a marvel to help supply the Allied effort in Normandy. Without it supplies and victory would have been much more difficult. Worth the visit here!
It is so difficult to envisage what happened here on the 6th of June 1944.

Stopped here as part of a Leger battlefield tour. You must come and see the remains of the mulberry harbour when doing the d-day thing. Just to see the engineering feet alone takes your breath away. And it lasted for a long time! Well worth seeing.
Seeing the remains of this structure was impressive. You can go down and have a walk around the remains, but there are also viewing binoculars on the beach promenade which allow you to look out if the tide is coming in. The town is worth a visit.
