A star of Dunkirk movie opens to visitors at Buckler's Yard

5 September 2017

Buckler’s Hard visitors will be able to take tours on board HMS Medusa – which took a starring role in the recently released ‘Dunkirk’ movie – while it is moored at the attraction on Friday 29 September 2017.

The historic harbour defence motor launch can be spotted several times in the Dunkirk movie taking soldiers out to a destroyer.

HMS Medusa was chosen for filming because of its role to help clear the way to Omaha Beach for D-Day. Its new-found celebrity and recent D-Day commemorations have also led to a trip to France this year and filming for a documentary on the History Channel.

Visitors to Buckler’s Hard are welcome to go on board the vessel during attraction opening times between 10am – 4.30pm.  You will also be able to talk to crew on board and learn more about the vessel’s role in history and recent filming, while it is moored at the attraction on the Beaulieu River.
