Nice place to visit if you have never been to an abbey turned into ruins, quiet and calm. There is not much of an abbey left and if you are not a fan of such places book an hour or less for a visit. Check...More

A payable site but worth the entry. Stunning white stone and awesome vestiges of the buildings. Everyone very welcoming and chairs dotted around to rest and contemplate the surroundings. The scale of the whole place and the ruins are impressive.

A great ruined abbey in Jumieges. The walls give an idea of the magnificence of the buildings. Beautiful grounds.

Tucked neatly at the foot of the hill, Abbaye de Jumieges is simply must do, must see attraction. Built over 1400 years ago, although in ruins there's eough still standing to offer the visitor a taste of hat the abbey was like during its occupation,

A spectacular ruin and grounds. Not to be missed and the visit is not expensive when compared with what you'd have to pay in the U.K. The history is explained in pamphlet and on boards as you go round

Impressive to see ruins of this Abbey built over 1400 years ago and partly destroyed by the Vikings about 1100 years ago. Worth the visit. Admission cost €6.50

Without a doubt one of our favourite places when in this area of Normandy. Idyllic grounds, relaxing and immaculately looked after, the ruins are impressive and you can spend as long or as little there. There are facilities, lovely gift shop, and large games -...More

The abbey itself is absolutely worth visiting if you're anywhere near the Rouen area. It's a magnificent site with much of the ancient buildings still upright. Impressive to look at and great for kids to explore. There are a few things that might annoy visitors,...More

The site is breathtaking and the ruins are immense. Such a tragedy that the abbey was turned into a quarry following the French Revolution... Take your time to fully explore the site, including the museum/art space in the former abbot's residence.

For goodness sake! The entrance fee to this ancient beautiful site is just 6.50 euros. If you can afford a cruise you can afford the entrance fee to these amazing ruins!

Thanks to the helpful people on this forum, I am just back from my trip to Normandy. I thought I'd do a quick trip report to help other people who are planning trips.

Fri am - Beauvais - Giverny - Les Andelys -Rouen Collected the rental car at Beauvais airport and was on the road by about 8.30. I set the GPS for Giverny and off I went. The GPS took...More

Hello I remember your original thread and I am impressed with what you managed to achieve. I also think you were right to cut a few things you had wanted to do, to keep yourself safe on the road! The reason it can take a long time to get anywhere is that France is big (compared to the UK and Ireland) things are spread out and distance is far..... I have a UK Bank Account that has no exchange fees so I can use a £sterling account just fine. You don't necessarily need a Euros account to use...More

We will be renting a car and exploring Normandy and just discovered Abbaye de Jumieges in a guide book. Has anyone visited, how is the ferry, how much time should we allow on our way to Caen? Thank you for any responses.
