An extraordinary ruin of what once must have been the finest church building in central france

The abbaye is still a massive site ( the original walls were four courses high) and the two great tours are still present and can be seen for miles. The site of the abbaye is... read more

The abbaye is still a massive site ( the original walls were four courses high) and the two great tours are still present and can be seen for miles. The site of the abbaye is unique as it lies in the middle of a large Oxbow in the Seine river. To get to it from most directions one has to... More

The ruins of this abbey date from the 600's. The grounds are vast and what is left of the abbey is beautiful and serene. Pick up an English brochure when you pay so you know what you are viewing.

The abbey is not going to blow your mind with architecture or art, but it is a very cool place. Plenty of green space, gardens, ruins, and peace and quiet. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

We drove along the Seine to get here with wonderful views through the orchards that line this section of the river. The ruined abbey is truly spectacular. It was almost deserted on a Saturday morning . There is a gift shop and toilets and parking just across the road We wandered round the grounds and into the exhibition of "Portrait... More

Very romantic landscape for the ruins of this magnificent abbey. The grounds are quite extensive and permit a view of the abbey from many different points. Worth the visit!

The abbey - an impressive ruin- is set in beautiful grounds and a helpful English tablet provides plenty of background information in an interesting way. The abbey opens all day from early on - later, it gets busier with coach parties. There are no refreshments inside, but a good bistro just opposite, and a lovely abbey gift shop.

There are ruins and then..there are ruins! the outstanding ruins of the Jumieges Benedictine abbey are tremendous, there are leaflets you can take around with you but to do it justice you need to take a guide to fully describe the history of this 11th century Romanesque ruin with its twin towers some 46mtrs high!! such a shame for it...

Hidden deep in one of the meanders of the Seine, below Rouen, is the most glorious abbey in France. Originally founded in 654AD, most of it was destroyed by the Vikings, then the Normans restored and extended it and William the Conqueror attended its opening ceremony in 1067. Parts of it date back to a church of the 9th century.... More
