The British Garden

In 2004, Prince Charles inaugurated the British Garden...

This Garden was designed and built on behalf of the British Friends of Normandy with the help of the City of Caen.

Various sculptures evoking the participation of the various forces in the conflict: the Royal Air force, the Royal Navy and the 15 British divisions are represented by cypress trees planted alongside a colonnade in bloom.

The entrance pergola is in the form of a celtic cross to mark the involvement of the Irish regiments. The Temple of Spirits is the center piece in memory of those who lost their lives. The Peace Garden which is for quiet contemplation is entered through a conifer arch.
