Famous for its magnificent coastline, lush landscape and fascinating history Normandy is a popular camping and caravanning destination for the British. Campsites in Normandy allow visitors to explore its stunning coastline which offers something for everyone; from quiet sandy beaches to charming fishing ports to popular family resorts.
To commemorate the region’s most famous battle, the 1944 D-Day landings, Normandy is proud of its war memorials, museums and cemeteries. You’ll find many of these around the Bayeux area and along the coast. You can also take a journey further back in time with a visit to the historic cities of Dieppe, Caen and Rouen and don’t miss one of France’s most breath-taking tourist attractions, the ancient island-abbey of Le Mont-St.-Michel.
