Bridge · Historic Site
Renamed in 1944, the name of Pegasus Bridge honors British airborne forces who wore a shoulder emblem of a flying Pegasus during the D-Day invasions. You can view the original bridge, built in 1934, in the park grounds of the Pegasus Museum. Some people call this the "Bridge of the Longest Day," due to its capture by British forces during their most famous mission.

  • I thought this was a great experience and the staff could not be more helpful. It is a must see for any one wanting to see iconic history and gain a deeper insight for what was really achieved.  more »
  • What an amazing place. So much history from WW2 here. The museum is really good, and you can see the landing places of the Horsa Gliders over the road in the fields. You HAVE to visit.  more »
