A short drive from where our ship docked in Caudebec is the 7th century ruins of the Jumieges Abby. Upon entering the grounds through the Gatehouse, you will see a facade with inner walls soaring up to the sky, between 2 towers. You can also see the massive columns that once supported this huge structure of a building. Scattered on... More

This is by far the most impressive Abbey I have ever seen, and at the time we went, there was a collection of photographic art displayed in the grounds which in itself was worth seeing. Lovely grounds and Abbots residence, with it's story told in all languages, and at just E6.50 p/p, well worth it.

The Michelin green guide rates this site 3 star, you can not argue with that rating. It is a truly romantic setting, located in a forested bend on the Seine.

Sadly much of the Abbey was dismantled after the French revolution but what remains is still staggeringly impressive.

Highly recommend as a detour if you're nearby. It was truly stunning walking around and then just sitting at these ruins. The silence was addictive; there were people writing and painting on the site and I understand why. I could have stayed there all day.

We visited the abbey with our two small children aged six and nine. The staff were very helpful and the entrance fee is incredibly reasonable. The children were both free and I think we paid €6.5 for each adults. My little boy had a wonderful time as for five euros you can hire an iPad that gives you a 3-D... More
