Getting Here

By car

The British Normandy Memorial is located just off the D514 in the commune of Ver-sur-Mer, Calvados. It is about 25 minutes from the outskirts of Caen or Bayeux. If you are using a Sat Nav please use the address: 13 Avenue Paul Poret, Ver-sur-Mer, 14114. Vehicular access to the Memorial is from either Courcelles (to the East) or Arromanches (to the West) and along the D514 coast road in order to avoid approaching Ver-sur-Mer from the South.

The local roads are narrow and winding and, in some places, impassable for larger vehicles (coaches, camper vans or cars towing trailers). Therefore, please follow the local tourism signs as you get close to the Memorial rather than your Satnav. The Memorial is accessible to cyclists by using the cycle path and there are cycle hoops to lock your bike to as cycles are not permitted within the Memorial itself.


There is a small fee for parking and tickets are valid all day. The scheme is operated by Pay by Phone and you can pay via their app, online or by phone. Vehicles are not permitted to stay overnight or park next to the Memorial itself. Users of this car park do so at their own risk. The management will not accept liability for any accidents, damage, or loss incurred.

All funds raised go towards the ongoing maintenance of the Memorial. You can find out more about how to support the preservation of the Memorial here.
