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

You can’t imagine a more “romantic” site. Jumièges Abbey is a huge jumble of ruined buildings set in beautiful green parkland. The older of the two churches goes back to the 9th century, and some of these Carolingian ruins are still standing. The rest of...More

The Abbaye de Jumieges is packed with historical significance. The multilingual signage is clear, succinct, and informative. Due to the unfortunate period when the site was ravaged by use as a stone quarry, only one third of the original abbey exists today. Nevertheless, we still...More

A sleepy little village with an Abbaye to match Nortre Dame... spectacular... Great pattiserie nearby and great restaurants and walks.
