The bombing of this dam caused 1,600 civilian deaths and the destruction of whole villages. Visit the memorial at its base. The surrounding area is beautiful for walking or biking.

We visited as part of a coach tour doing a Dambusters Tour. This place was packed with tourists and locals alike just walking and reminiscing the dams history.

If you have not been before then the Dam is worth a visit. The weather was beautiful for us which made a difference. The bouncing bomb was a genius invention and 617 squadron (The Dambusters) were incredibly to actually bomb this dam during WW2.

Lovely walks around the resivoire and the dam it's self. Recommend to cross it and go down below to get the scale of it. Gets very busy but surrounding area has lots of nice walks.

It may not take long but the walk along the dam is really worth it. It's obviously of great historical significance and very interesting to read and see. In the summer there are some nice walks up and around from the dam. But even in...More

I first saw this in 1985 when it wasn't such a huge tourist attraction but a historical place of interest. There is now a paved footpath around the dam which allows for all types of sport and leisure activities. No restaurants open for coffee due...More
