Normandy has become synonymous with the Second World War, and history aficionados have long flocked to its museums and memorials. If you’re eager to delve into Normandy’s past — whether 20th Century or medieval — look to base yourself in or around Caen, Cherbourg or Bayeux. Famed for its marvellous tapestry, Bayeux also features the largest British Commonwealth wartime cemetery in France. The 80km of coastline used in the D-Day Landings are perhaps best explored with an expert guide — although many of the fishing villages are lovely for a history-minded wander and seafood lunch, too.
The region has also been inspiring artists for centuries. Visit Rouen to admire the cathedral, which Monet painted many times, and to see the Musée des Beaux Arts. The Impressionists were fascinated by the light in coastal Honfleur, a fantastic seaside destination, and Claude Monet lived for decades in Giverny. His house and gardens now play host to the excellent Monet Foundation. Charming Etretat, too, has impressive artistic connections.
Keen foodies looking to sample the top regional cuisine à la Normande need look no further than the best places to stay in Normandy — many of our favourite spots have acclaimed eateries of their own!
