Make your first stop at the Merville Battery, which overlooks Sword Beach and the military cemetery, where British and Canadian regiments suffered great losses. Then, visit Ranville, the first village to be liberated after the Allied offensive. Explore Ranville War Cemetery, the resting place of many of the British soldiers killed during the early stages of the Battle of Normandy, as well as Pegasus Bridge, which was captured intact in less than ten minutes on 6 June 1944.
