Caen

Make it your Norman conquest

Historic Caen is capital of Lower Normandy or ‘Basse Normandie’ – a great place to explore the rural glories of northern France, and a bit of history; ancient and modern. Founded by William the Conqueror almost 1000 years ago, it boasts a castle, museums, abbeys, and in recognition of its role in World War II (and the battle that raged here), there’s a world class museum, Le Memorial, which uses audio-visual magic to bring the experience to life.
