I'm just going to say that what astounded me was just how sophisticated the tapestry is. It covers the what and why of the Norman conquest of England. That story is presented on this huge tapestry, in great detail, with much subtlety. In a nutshell,...More

You should not miss seeing the Bayeux tapestry. It is breathtaking and an inspiring visual presentation of an important period of history. To think that such a beautiful tapestry (over 100 meters in length) has survived for almost 1,000 years in pristine condition is mind...More

Don't miss this. Not a lot of advertisement. Tells the history of William the Conqueror. It is the original tapestry that is actually embroidery that tells the entire story.

This is a must-see as a piece of historic heritage as well as a piece of art by itself. Whether you are interested in the Norma conquest or not, the "Tapisserie" is worth a trip to charming Bayeux.

Excellent visit. Great audio guide (compulsory) kept visitors well-spaced so the Americans who were at top volume only needed one shush (although they did get very upset that the tapestry was as long as it is!). In short, go if you want to see a...More

Hard to believe that this tapestry is that old. Use the audio guide and just follow along. Worth the price in my opinion.

We learned about this in history lessons at school but went with only vague ideas about what it would actually be like. It's worth going early in the day before it gets busy with coach parties and school trips. We arrived shortly after it opened,...More
