We were in the area and thought we’d take in the cultural sights, this being one. Firstly the best place to park is the Parc Michel Ornano in the centre of the town, which is on Sat Navs as ‘14400 Bayeux’, also public toilets are here and the museum is well signposted. The museum seems to be open most of... More

Cannot imagine how the entire work was created till the time you visit the section where the explain the entire process. The audio guide offered is highly informative to explain every bit in detail of what unfolded there.

One of the true wonders of historic heritage, the presentation is truly ponderous great care has been taken to present this tapestry in its fullness yet protect its fragility. Don't miss this if your in Normandy as it is a treasure of such importance to our joint heritage and history of France and uk. Cannot rate it any higher than... More

This tapestry is amazing. It takes awhile to get use to the commentary from the audio tour, but we took it twice so the second time we were able to catch things we missed the first time around.

Great audioguide goes with the magnificent tapistry. Don't miss. Customer service is very friendly and the tapistry is housed in a very cool old building.

Having heard so much about the Bayeux Tapestry over the years, it was truly amazing to see how long the tapestry is. It was displayed beautifully and the accompanying commentary on the recorders we were issued with, was brilliant. It gave the complete history as we walked along the tapestry and filled in all the detail which had been embroidered... More

The Bayeux Tapestry is absolutely amazing--unlike any other I've seen. It is incredible how long it is (70 meters) and is unlike tapestries seen in castles--instead of being woven it is more like crewel embroidery. The detail depicting people and horses is amazing as you learn of William's conquest of England and the Battle of Hastings. The headsets are wonderful... More

The tapestry tells the story of the 1066 Battle of Hastings and what led up to it. Included in the 9 euro ticket price is an excellent audio guide, which gives a lot of the background to the Norman invasion, but it goes a little too fast to take it all in. You can pause it but it would have... More
