Holidays to Normandy

Normandy is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from the UK and elsewhere. Ideal for a short holiday, the region has no shortage of attractions and activities.

In its history and culture, Normandy is the image of its capital, Caen: where past, present and a gentle pace of life combine to offer many things to see and do. From its incredible landscapes to its rich heritage, including museums and gastronomy, Normandy will delight all who like to explore.

Normandy is the birthplace of Impressionism, where Monet painted his "Rising sun" in 1872. To find out more, visit his former home in Giverny, where you can see the gardens that inspired him. Other places devoted to this movement are worth seeing, such as the Rouen Museum of Fine Arts, the André Malraux Museum in Le Havre and the Auberge des Sœurs Moisy in Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei. The region also offers Impressionism tours, which will lead you to discover Honfleur, whose port has inspired more than one artist. It is also the perfect opportunity to admire the Alabaster Coast and the magnificent cliffs of Étretat.

The region is rich in history, due to its importance during the Second World War. Visit the D-Day beaches, including Omaha Beach in Colleville, with its moving American cemetery and memorial museum, Gold Beach in Arromanches and its Landing Museum and Sword Beach in Ouistreham, a place of commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. Another must-see in the region is Mont-Saint-Michel, which becomes an island at high tide. The bay and its new promenade-dam are magnificent, and the highlight is the abbey dedicated to the archangel who appeared several times to Bishop Aubert.

To travel to Normandy, you can land in Caen, Deauville or Rouen. The TGV currently serves only Rouen and Le Havre. Normandy has a good railway network, making it easy to discover the surrounding area by train. You can also cross the region for a very reasonable price on one of the many subsidised bus routes. The region is particularly easy to reach from the UK by ferry or the Channel Tunnel.

If you prefer to travel to Normandy by public transport, it’s easy to hire a car on arrival.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Normandy?

A: Unless you're a real car buff, public transportation or ride-sharing is probably the easiest and best way of moving around the buzzing streets of Le Havre or Rouen. With no pricey parking fees (or trips to the gas pump) to worry you, you'll be able to relax and check out the city's popular sights with ease. If your aim is to hightail it straight out of town and soak up the landscapes of the region of Seine-Maritime or elsewhere, grabbing the keys to a rental is an excellent option. Take a look around our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Normandy, book a set of wheels and go where you want, whenever you want.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Normandy?

A: There are numerous airports in Normandy. International flights typically operate to and from:

  • Caen (CFR-Carpiquet): 21 international flights per month.
  • Deauville (DOL-Normandie): 9 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Normandy?

A: Many visitors enjoy spending their getaways in hotels. Some like the services and amenities of guest houses or apartments, while others prefer bed & breakfasts. Whatever you're searching for, Normandy has ample options for all budgets.

Q: What does a Normandy holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Convenient flights, welcoming hotels and a set of wheels to drive around in — and that's just the start. Expedia also has a huge selection of experiences and activities. Browse what's on offer and start creating your perfect getaway in Normandy.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Normandy?

A: Locking in a package makes travelling easier, and it can save you a small fortune to boot. Hotels, Experiences, Rental Cars — Expedia has it all. Bundle the lot and start daydreaming about what you're going to do with that extra spending money.

Q: What are the best things to do in Normandy?

A: You'll have loads of choices — Jardins Suspendus, Marie du Havre and Appartement Témoin are some to start with. These frequently visited attractions are situated in Le Havre.

Find an experience perfect for you. In Rouen, attractions like Musee des Antiquites, Rouen Cemetery and Panorama XXL are bound to please.

Lastly, get a feel for life in Evreux by visiting Le Cadran, Aero d'Evreux and Garden Golf d'Evreux.
