Castletown D-Day Centre

Castletown D-Day Centre is an authentic recreation of the busy wartime dockyard on the Isle of Portland, from which in 1944, thousands of American troops of the 5th US Corps and the US 1st infantry, embarked, bound for the heavily defended beaches of Nazi occupied France. The centre features an impressive array of original WW2 artifacts, weapons and wartime vehicles, including a full size replica Spitfire, a Bofors 40mm gun and even a restored Sherman tank.To enhance your D-Day experience, we actively encourage our visitors to handle the weapons, climb on our vehicles and even dress up in authentic WW2 uniforms and get 'In The Mood'.
