We’ll start this tour with a drive through the heart of the Cotentin Peninsula heading straight for the famous Tapestry Museum, which draws visitors from all over the world. The Bayeux – or Queen Mathilda - Tapestry is about 70 metres long and tells the story of the Norman conquest of England. You’ll find 58 individually embroidered scenes, and there’s an incredible amount of detail in each one. Afterwards, you’ll have a chance to stop for lunch or hit the shops before we set off on a guided walk in the afternoon. The city’s winding streets are full of wooden-framed Norman houses and Medieval buildings. And you can’t miss the huge Gothic Cathedral of Notre Dame. All arches, gargoyles and stained-glass windows, it was completed in 1077. You can get some photos before we head back to the ship.
