    We had the pleasure and honour to receive a guided tour from Tuesday afternoon. Volunteer with us (Georges) was passionate and exciting. He shares with us the history of this place, its research work, his meetings with a German soldier and the descendants of colonel, as well as with veterans. More than two hours to explore this site and listen to this gentleman, thanks to him and to the other members of the association who do a very good job. Visit regularly again since renovations are still ongoing.

    Of passage to visit the landing beaches... I followed the signs and I found this site informative and very well maintained. A volunteer even opened the door of the small museum... it's great!

    Immerse you, family, to relive an episode of d-day, through a visit to the site of Hillman. The visit to the Museum is free. It is a place of memory, preserved by the work of a few volunteers, has therefore no another vocation than to capture the history of these soldiers who have made history. Thank you very much.

    This is a great free "open all year" outdoor museum. Be sure to go on a Tuesday, if you can, then you can catch a guided tour. If you can't, bring a torch so you can look into the open bunkers or look into the close ones and see what you are missing out on 😋 We're there for two hours, just us visiting. So not a overrun site, but definitely worth checking out!

    A great place to visit & free entry. Usually very quiet which only adds to the atmosphere. If your British its a must see.

    The site includes many blockhouses which some visitable! In addition, the visits, organized by the association of the friends of the Suffolk Regiment, are very interesting. Free parking is available if you have a car, which is better to get to the site.
