From now until December 24th, I’ll be sharing some of my favourite photos as a virtual Normandy Advent Calendar. Think of it as a little treat each day in the run up to the festive season. Feast your eyes on the wonderful Normandy places I’ll be sharing with you over the next few weeks.

This photo is one of six sculptures at the D-Day Garden in Arromanches. The sculptures were installed earlier this year to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day on 6th June. Five of the figures are made of metal washers while the sixth is made of stone.

The garden is set on a cliff top overlooking Gold Beach. The troops that landed on Gold Beach were mainly British. Four of the figures represent young soldiers making their way onto the beach through the waves and enemy obstacles. You can see more photos and read about the poignant story of the two other sculptures created for the D-Day garden.

We spent 3 weeks creating the best online guide to Normandy on the web. It includes everything from a bucket list, must see attractions to the best places to eat and drink.

It covers Mont St Michel, Monet’s garden, the D Day beaches, wine tours and much more. .

It’s packed with our personal recommendations, maps and videos.
