Introduction

Normandy is a part of France with a lot to shout about. Once one of the most powerful parts of medieval Europe, Normandy is home to Rouen - one of France's oldest cities and home to the Bayeux tapestry, a 70-metre embroidered cloth dating from the 11th century that is among the world's most famous artworks.

Normandy has also played a prominent role in more modern French history, though despite the destruction reaped on it towards the end of the Second World War, many of its towns and landmarks have been immaculately restored. Visiting the D-Day beaches and sites connected with the Battle for Normandy, or Operation Overlord as it's more often known, is another highly recommended inclusion for Normandy travel.

As well as it's interesting history, Normandy has plenty more to entice holidaymakers - whether it's visiting the region's cider farms, gorging on locally produced Camembert or strolling along the waterfront in the attractive fishing towns of Honfleur and Barfleur, where attractive houses look out across a bay full of pretty fishing boats and smart yachts.

It also has a broad choice of accommodation, with a host of excellent campsites, quiet gîtes and pleasant local hotels to stay in. As such, it's suitable for both short breaks and longer holidays taking in other parts of Western France as well.

Where to go in Normandy

Rouen

Rouen, on the banks of the Seine, is one of France's oldest cities and has plenty of interest to travellers in Normandy. Founded in 911, it was here that Joan of Arc was tried and subsequently burnt at the stake in the Place de Vieux-Marche in 1431.
