D Day 75th anniversary

Commemorations and events across Portsmouth all summer

This year is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, a battle that began on June 6, 1944, during World War II.

Over 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces came together to land on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of heavily fortified coast in Normandy. Codenamed Operation Overlord, the Normandy landings are often referred to as the beginning of the end of the war in Europe.

D-Day 75 commemorative events span the whole of summer 2019 and beyond with several significant events in and around central Portsmouth.

Haslar Marina is the perfect base to explore Portsmouth Harbour - on foot, by the Gosport Ferry and by the Historic Dockyard ferry service. Call 02392 601201 to book a berth.
