You can tour the ruins of an old abbey here. It was built in 654, destroyed a few times, and ultimately destroyed in the French Revolution. It is a really neat site here. You can walk all around the ruins and inside what is left....More

A payable site but worth the entry. Stunning white stone and awesome vestiges of the buildings. Everyone very welcoming and chairs dotted around to rest and contemplate the surroundings. The scale of the whole place and the ruins are impressive.

A great ruined abbey in Jumieges. The walls give an idea of the magnificence of the buildings. Beautiful grounds.

Tucked neatly at the foot of the hill, Abbaye de Jumieges is simply must do, must see attraction. Built over 1400 years ago, although in ruins there's eough still standing to offer the visitor a taste of hat the abbey was like during its occupation,

A spectacular ruin and grounds. Not to be missed and the visit is not expensive when compared with what you'd have to pay in the U.K. The history is explained in pamphlet and on boards as you go round

Impressive to see ruins of this Abbey built over 1400 years ago and partly destroyed by the Vikings about 1100 years ago. Worth the visit. Admission cost €6.50

Without a doubt one of our favourite places when in this area of Normandy. Idyllic grounds, relaxing and immaculately looked after, the ruins are impressive and you can spend as long or as little there. There are facilities, lovely gift shop, and large games -...More

The abbey itself is absolutely worth visiting if you're anywhere near the Rouen area. It's a magnificent site with much of the ancient buildings still upright. Impressive to look at and great for kids to explore. There are a few things that might annoy visitors,...More

The site is breathtaking and the ruins are immense. Such a tragedy that the abbey was turned into a quarry following the French Revolution... Take your time to fully explore the site, including the museum/art space in the former abbot's residence.

In mid-June 2018, we travelled by bus from Caudebec en Caux, France (where our Vantage river cruise ship was docked) to Jumieges to tour the ruins of the Jumieges Abbey. It is one of the oldest and most important Benedictine monasteries in Normandy. It is...More
