Bayeux France we have drove passed the town on several occasion.When we have sailed to the port of Caen on our way to Normandy and the Vendee.On this visit we were staying about 30 miles away at Fecamp.So it was only a short drive away and I wanted to see the Bayeux Tapestry
The Bayeux Tapestry Museum at 13 rue de Nesmond 14400 Bayeux.Which is in the city centre.
We visited in late September so we managed to park on the street a short distance away.It costs about 10 euros to get in.The tapestry is displayed behind glass in an oval hall.
The tapestry is about 230 feet long it is laid out like a strip of movie film.You have a headset in your language and slowly walk along side the tapestry.It was not to busy when we visited so we got to walk next to the glass.On a busy day you could be 4 or 5 rows away and not see much.There is also a display of Norman items and a gift shop.We enjoyed our visit and thought it was good value.
The Cathedral is just a short walk from the Tapestry Museum.We just walked round by ourselves you can go on a tour. There are several which will give you an insight into the history of the Cathedral and town.Looking round the Cathedral and thinking about the events that happened here.Harold made a vow to William here and then broke it and that led to the battle in 1066.
When you have had enough of the history there are plenty of cafe/bars in the centre of town.We found a nice one just near the Museum.The Centre of Bayeux is nice and compact with several shopping streets so it is easy to walk round.Like most French town there is a tourist train if you get tired.The town was very busy 5 minutes before I took the photos we then had a cloud burst which cleared the streets
