Bayeux is a commune or district in Normandy, NW France, just 8 km inland from the English Chanel. Bayeux is known as the home of the Bayeux Tapestry (68m by 50 cm) which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England by William the Conqueror who defeated Harold at Hastings (England) in 1066. The tapestry, embroidered on linen with coloured woollen yarns, dates from the 11th C, and is the town’s major tourist attraction. It is exhibited at the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux. (View it on loan to the British Museum in 2022.) “It was designed to tell a story to a largely illiterate public; it is like a strip cartoon, racy, emphatic, colourful, with a good deal of blood and thunder and some ribaldry” (Wingfield Digby, G. 1957)

The town lies 90 km from Cherbourg which is the nearest major port. The river Aure flows through Bayeux, offering panoramic views from a number of locations. Bayeux was the first major town secured by the Allies after D-Day, 6 June 1944. Fortunately, Bayeux was not damaged during the war. Nearby to Bayeux are located the Normandy Beaches and Battlefields, war museums and the British War Cemetery. The town is also home to a memorial to all of the journalists who have lost their lives while reporting.

Sites to look for include: the Jardin botanique de Bayeux, a botanical garden and municipal park; the (above mentioned) William the Conqueror Center, an impressive 18th-century building; and the fine Norman Gothic Cathedral that has undergone many changes over the centuries. During the 13th century Gothic period, a superb chancel and a Norman Gallery were added. Later additions included the building of side chapels along the aisles, frescoes, furniture and works of art.
