Southwick House

At the time of D-Day, the Allied commanders met at Southwick House, just outside Portsmouth. Southwick House and its famous D-Day wall map can be visited by prior arrangement (appointments are necessary as it is on a military base). To visit Southwick House, please contact the Defence School of Policing and Guarding - click here to send an email (visits can only be arranged by email). We have been informed by the Ministry of Defence that visits by the general public to the wall map have been restricted to Thursdays only for the foreseeable future due to heightened security. The D-Day Museum is not responsible for visits to Southwick House and has no connection with the site. This information is provided for the public benefit, as we receive many enquiries about this subject. For a large size photo of the D-Day Wall Map, click here.
