With a stunning alabaster coastline, flourishing pastures and charming architecture, Normandy’s picturesque nature – once Monet’s inspiration – is in evocative contrast to its turbulent past. Although most famous for WWII’s D-Day landings in 1944, Normandy has played many leading roles in European history. In between your time spent at beautiful pebbled beaches, renowned museums or meandering country lanes, visit the spot where, in 1431, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake or see the celebrated Bayeux tapestry. Aside from the serious stuff, Normandy is also pretty cheesy … literally. While several world-renowned cheeses are created here, seafood is also a specialty, with fresh oysters and mussels in constant supply. With both history and gastronomy, you’ll find plenty to do in this stunning coastal region.

    Best Time To Visit Tourist season in Normandy lasts from June to September, so if you're looking for lower costs and less crowds, we recommend visiting in spring or autumn. May sees the arrival of plenty of festivities including the Joan of Arc festival and the annual Jazz festival, although it’s not as warm as summer so don't forget to pack a jumper! If you don't mind the crowds and the extra cost, try and visit in June during the annual commemorations of the D-Day anniversary.
    Getting There For inter-regional travel, train is your best bet in France. From Paris, travel to the Caen, Rouen, or Bayeux stations to reach Normandy. If you fancy a French road trip, Normandy is easily reached by car, just be wary of the frequent toll charges.
    Money Saving Tips Eating out in France can be expensive, so opt for a picnic lunch at one of Normandy’s many scenic locations instead. Wine-lovers will rejoice in the cheap array of wines available in this rich foodie region.
