Events Bayeux

We are lucky !
We have a lot of events in Normandy...
Our town perpetually provides entertainment for locals and tourists.
All the time our guests are enjoyed to visit the center and see one of the most beautiful center which was not destroy during the World War II.
Bayeux is internationally renowned and people from many countries come to visit this heritage and discover the Bayeux Tapestry listed by UNESCO, the wonderful Cathedral Reine Mathilde, the landing places of the Second World War and its great medieval feast, all years, the first weekend of July.

Don’t forget... Bayeux is the right place to be...just in the middle of Paris, Mont Saint Michel, Saint Malo, Caen, Rouen, Cherbourg, Saint Mère l’Eglise, Honfleur, d-days beaches...to stay at Bayeux is a good idea to visit all these areas in Normandy.
