From the series: Ferry Trips to France

Arromanches-les-Bains is a small coastal village about 9km North of Bayeux. Easily reached via the Channel Ferries or “Chunnel”. It is famously associated with the Normandy Landings of the Second World War as the site for the Mulberry Harbour – a system of concrete pontoon docks facilitating the unloading of over 300,000 troops and 100,000 tons of food and equipment in the first few weeks of operation. There is a small museum with information of Operation Overlord and the Mulberry caissons.
