On a river cruise with Avalon Waterways (Paris & Normandy Landing Beaches itinerary) we took a tour of the abbey ruins. Honestly, we were told that it was one of the finest ruins in all of France and I believe they were right!! Don't miss it. They provide washrooms- they are in the gift shop/entrance. The ruins is still gigantic... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the ruins of the Abbaye de Jumieges. Knowing little of the site, we saw it listed in our Michelin green guide and detoured from our route to Rouen to see it. The ruins are beautiful in and of themselves, but they also hint at the power and size of the abbey in its prime.... More

I recently spent the better part of a day wandering through the ruins of the Abbaye de Jumièges, which Victor Hugo called "... the most beautiful ruin in France." Originally built in the year 654 a.d., it was subsequently destroyed by the Vikings, and later during the Hundred years War. After the French Revolution, the abbey was cannibalised for its... More

We stopped here while driving from Rouen to Honfleur. Most of the Abbey is in ruins and France has elected to leave it this way. It's a beautiful site and well maintained. There is a nice restaurant across from the entrance that had a great lunch.

The first thing that struck us about this ruined abby was its height. It towers above me. It is a ruin rather than an operating abby and I tend to think thaat ruins are more mystical than the restored abbeys and such. They are more subject to my imagination. The site is incredible. The first areas are stunning because of... More

Amazing ruined Abbey with little souvenir shop and information leaflet, nice grounds. On a nice day would be a great spot for a picnic but only a couple of hours needed to take it in.

This is a little off the beaten track, but the ruins and the grounds are stunning and the journey is worthwhile. There is one wall of an enormous spire / tower standing alone that is something to behold. You look up and up and bend backwards until your eyes finally reach the top. It is a place where you can...

One of several Abbies along the Seine River in Normandy that are all worth visiting. This one however is the jewel in the crown. The ruins are well preserved and give one a sense of the beauty before they were razed following the French Revolution. There is a sense of drama in the ruins and the wild flowers that grow... More
