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.
