Go on a driving holiday in Europe and discover the exciting history hidden in Normandy, France. A self-drive holiday makes it easy to get around and visit the exciting sights and Bayeux is only about half an hour's drive from Caen so is certainly worth a visit. The town's main attraction is the Bayeux Museum, home to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Let your imagination run riot over the battle scenes on the 70.5-metre-long piece of linen canvas, as arrows whizz by your ears and fierce Vikings with and without heads fight with bloody axes and swords. Get a rare insight into the history of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 with this stunning piece of medieval graffiti with a production date close to the end of the Viking Age - a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with a major historical event.
