Bayeux is a commune in the Calvados department, world famous for the Bayeux Tapestry and the rich history surrounding its creation. The tapestry illustrates, in needlework, the events that led up to the Norman’s conquest of England in 1066. It is displayed in a museum in the town centre and attracts millions of tourists every year.

However, the spectacular tapestry is not the only reason to visit Bayeux. This colourful city in the north west of France has been remarkably preserved despite the wars it has experienced. Bayeux has a wealth of history and some fantastic sights including the Aure river, which runs through the city and is breath-taking. The winding streets lead to quaint Norman buildings, an opulent Gothic cathedral and a whole host of delightful period buildings. The beaches of Normandy will please history buffs and sand lovers alike, and the flower-adorned gardens are truly lovely.

A two-day break
Two days is enough time to visit the sights that this historic city is so famous for. A trip here would not be complete without seeing the Bayeux Tapestry. The 58-scene tapestry is proudly displayed in Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux and is undoubtedly the most famous piece of needlework in the world. It is remarkably well-preserved and there is a fifteen minute film explaining its history. On your second day, be sure to visit the Bayeux Cathedral, an impressive Gothic cathedral which dates back to the 13th century and is situated in the heart of the town.

A week-long stay
With a whole week you can discover Bayeux at a leisurely pace. After seeing the city’s two main sights it is worth trying out some of the restaurants in this picturesque place. Eat by the river for excellent views and delicious food made with fresh Norman produce. The Premiere Classe Hotel Bayeux is easy to reach from the motorway and is well located for Bayeux’s attractions. The BayeuxWar Cemetery is the biggest Commonwealth military cemetery in Normandy. There are 4848 soldiers’ graves here.

A family holiday
Even children who do not understand the history of Normandy will appreciate the beauty of Gold Beach. If the gold sand, blue skies and turquoise sea don't entice you, the water sports will.

Bayeux is easily accessible from several places, including Paris Amiens and Caen, from the N13 motorway. The nearest airport is Caen-Carpiquet Airport, which is 20km away, and the nearest ferry stops at the Port of Ouistreham, 30km from Bayeux.

Taxis are also available within the city itself.

Gastronomy

Try the roast duck with heirloom vegetables. La Reine Mathilde is an old fashioned bakery and tea shop serving delightful pastries and cakes - a great place to relax after a day of exploring.
