Visiting The Bayeux Tapestry

Published on February 11, 2019 by Chris Robinson

For tourists visiting the Bayeux tapestry, this guide gives you all the information you need. It is most definitely worth a visit and should be on your Bayeux bucket list. It's probably what visitors associate the most with Bayeux.

Bayeux tapestry

The tapestry is, in fact, an embroidery completed in the 1070s. The detail of the stitching is so intricate. There are 58 embroidery panels in total and they're joined together to tell a story. They show the events that led to the Norman conquest of England. The final panels depict the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where Harold who was the King of England, was shot in the eye with an arrow.

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
