      This is a useful link. The Portsmouth-Caen ferry is the best for Normandy, and the port is very close to Pegasus Bridge and Cafe which is a good start.

        We did the beaches etc in 2002 and took the fast ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg (3 hours) and started the tour at Sainte-Mère-Eglise.  Try and get to Honfleur if you have the time.

          Did a short tour a while back.  We did Portsmouth - Caen going out and Cherbourg - Portsmouth coming back.  That way you can pick up everything from Caen to St Mere Eglise.  Lots to see!
