In the Calvados Department, Normandy, there is the commune of Bayeux that is home to the Bayeux tapestry, and is a North-western gem that delights all who visit it. Although it felt the effects of the Battle of Normandy, there was little damage done to the town. Perfect for a weekend away, this French location combines modernity with history and culture to deliver a dynamic tourist spot. The Rue de Cherbourg , D613, is where you can find one of our branches, which is only a short drive from the centre of the town. Hire a car in Bayeux and experience it your way.
In choosing to rent a car in Bayeux you can enjoy the sights beyond the town itself - visit the Bayeux Tapestry and appreciate the finely embroidered canvas created after the Battle of Hastings, then hop in the car and travel to Vire in over an hours drive. Here you can visit many historical ruins such as 12th century dungeons, and then interactive with exhibits in the local museums. Upon your return you can then visit the humbling and breathtaking British War Cemetery, a place which brings the effects of war to life in a different, more sobering way.
