    Walk the Town

    by hquittner Written Nov 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of old houses in Bayeux. In a separate tip we depict the House of Adam and Eve (which houses a lace museum). You go by the Cathedral and then on to the Deanery (once the Bishop's Palace) where the "Bayeux Tapestry" is housed. (It was pouring the last time we visited so the picture of the gate is out of kilter). Luckily, this is a great indoor experiece. Just beyond the hospital in a stream is a fine water mill. There is a Mining Museum but we did not have time for it and an Art Museum (BaronGerard, who painted Napoleon, but it is in the Louvre) with lace exhibits.

    Walk the streets of old Bayeux centre

    by Pavlik_NL Written Nov 23, 2007

    Bayeux has many monumental buildings, that best can be seen by taking a city tour. Walking (guided or not) through the streets, squares and alleys of Bayeux, look left and right for the ancient buildings or historical landmarks. There are many and with a book telling you about them all (or a tourist guide) you get realy in touch with this beautiful Normandian town. The scenic views over the little river Aure are already wonderful, but added with various beautiful "vakwerk" houses in town and some special memories from the past, Bayeux is definately worth a few of your hours of walking and gazing around.

    Walking around the city centre

    by froggy06 Written Nov 10, 2008

    Bayeux was spared during the war and as you walked around, you will enjoy the timbered houses and narrow medieval streets. The old part of this city is like coming out of one of Balzac's novels.

    Bayeux is a small town so just stroll around. In Spring and Summer there is a Pitit tourist train an horse and carriage.
