With our two ports in Caen and Cherbourg, Normandy couldn't be easier to reach, or more rewarding when you get there. Stylish beach resorts, a wealth of major historical sites, fabulous countryside, and the most delicious seafood imaginable are just a few of the many attractions that will all vie for your attention.
With a long, dramatic stretch of beautiful coastline and superb attractions, from the picturesque harbour of Honfleur to the magnificent Gothic abbey of Mont St Michel this region has long been a favourite with British holidaymakers. Inland has a landscape patterned with grand châteaux, fine parks and gardens, half-timbered houses and sleepy villages that come to life with colourful fêtes in the summer.
For those keen on outdoor pursuits the Suisse Normande area is ideal - its lush countryside, rocky crags and deep river gorges are very scenic and perfect for kayaking, climbing, mountain biking and walking. Normandy is steeped in history too; Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beaches and the war museums at Ste Mère Eglise and Arromanches are all poignant reminders of the famous D-Day landings of World War II. Or visit the bustling city of Caen with William the Conqueror's Abbaye aux Hommes and Bayeux with its tapestry which depicts a very intriguing tale of the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
