Bayeux was the first major town to be liberated after D-Day in 1944 and retains much of its original charm. Take the Old Town Tour and discover the medieval town area – follow the 21 notice boards along the 2.5km route and uncover its secrets.

The Bayeux Tapestry: this is the only document of its type in the world and is embroidery in wool on linen cloth made in the 11th century. The story unfolds over an amazing length of 70m and is told in simple terms but with a wealth of detail. The events portrayed took place during the expedition to England made by William Duke of Normandy’s army and conclude with a gripping depiction of the Battle of Hastings, which enabled William, the conqueror, to be crowned King of England.

We have seen the Tapestry a number of times and find something new each time - a great day out - check out the website.

The Memorial Museum to the Battle of Normandy had a major renovation and is well worth a visit.  Full of equipment and uniforms the museum offers visitors an insight into the considerable war effort made during this decisive battle for winning back peace in Europe - more information on the D-Day memorials page.
