Bayeux Discovery

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £143.15 GBP / Adult
View the Bayeux Tapestry, which depicts the historic Battle of Hastings and the Norman conquest of England on this journey to the historic medieval village of Bayeux. Find history in the streets and buildings of Bayeux. Not only was it the first town to be liberated in 1944 during the war, but it is also home to a very important piece of art. Wander the village's labyrinthine cobblestone streets and visit its ancient medieval cathedral. Then, view the breathtaking Bayeux Tapestry. While the tapestry is technically an embroidery, this dazzling piece depicts key moments in Britain's history. For example, the embroidery depicts, in vivid detail, the Battle of Hastings and the Norman conquest of England. French legend holds that the tapestry was commissioned and created by Queen Matilda, the wife of William the Conqueror. Afterward, sit down for coffee and a pastry at the Les Volets Roses coffee shop (or similar). This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
