Well known for

The location for 15,000 allied troops who, in Exercise Tiger, prepared for the D-Day landings. Over 1000 troops lost their lives here when German torpedo boats picked up the excess radio traffic and shelled two tank landing ships and the beach. A rescued Sherman amphibious tank now stands memorial to this World War II tragedy.

Exercise Tiger held every April. See www.exercisetigermemorial.co.uk.
