Overview

The beauty of Bayeux, untouched by history

Bayeux, it is not only housing a tapestry, it is so much more

Bayeux is a touristic little city located in Normandy, northwestern France. With some 13 000 inhabitants, the town, despite the damages of World War II in the region, can boast about possessing an important cultural and architectural heritage.

About France

Bayeux is world-famous for preserving its precious 11th century tapestry, also called Queen Mathilde Tapestry, which is 70 meters long!

Go to explore it and let you count the history of the conquest of England by William the Conqueror. In the charming centre, do not miss the cathedral Notre Dame of Bayeux, dedicated in 1077 in the presence of William the Conqueror, and embellished during the 13th and 15th century. Head the Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum and discover what happened the days after the terrible battle.

You will also find in Bayeux the largest british military cemetery of France, and the conservatory of lace, aiming for conserving this lacemaker craft tradition.

    Great way to see France |
    "Our trip by train from Paris St Lazarre to Bayeux was very easy. The station was orderly and easy to work our way through given that we are not fluent French speakers. The train was clean and comforatblae and the whole experience was positive. Had we known there were additional luggage racks mid-carriage even our little headache with travelling with 4 pieces of luggage would have disappeared. We had chosen the Print tickets at home option for the convenience of printing and re-printing from a pdf or email link while travelling. While no-one actually checked our tickets at all throughout this trip I was less comfortable with this option...the print quality of the tickets may not provide a workable scanned barcode. This happened later in our travels and next time, although they are 'old school' I will have paper tickets sent instead. "
