Summary

The D-Day Story gives a fascinating insight into the events of the Normandy Landings, and what faced those taking part. Through artefacts, personal testimonies and audio-visuals, the museum tells the story of the historic day - showcasing the epic made personal, the personal made epic.

Where is The D-Day Story located?

The D-Day Story is located on Clarence Esplanade, along Southsea Seafront. There is a paid car park alongside the museum. Just a few hundred metres from The D-Day Story is the historic Southsea Castle.

What is the history of The D-Day Story to the present day?

The museum has recently undergone a huge £5 million transformation project. The aim of this was to turn the attraction from something specialising in the technicalities of military history to tell the fascinating stories of those involved in the landings.

What is there to see and do at The D-Day Story?

The museum shows visitors around a timeline of events, from preparation to the battle, then finally the legacy. It shows the 'pencil that started the invasion', a glimpse into what faced those landing in Normandy, and concludes with the epic Overlord Embroidery - a fascinating piece all on its own.

Hampshire's Best Sights by Ben Ward

"Hampshire is a county known to fly somewhat under the radar. Adjacent to Dorset with its beautiful beaches; and Sussex, which contains one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the whole of the UK in Brighton, some might think that Hampshire has nothing to offer. This article will beg to differ and begin to explore some of the best spots, sights and attractions that are an absolute must for anyone wishing to visit the county."
