Pegasus Bridge, Ranville

4.7
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.
