Very large - impressive from both outside and in. A lot of renovation work being undertaken at the moment.

The cathedral is under renovation, and I'd love to return when it is finished. A local shared with us that this cathedral is the best one in the area for the light coming in through the stained glass.

This is a staple and must see when you come to Paris. The stain glass windows, the architecture, and the history is second to none. Climb the stairs for an extra price to see an amazing view of Paris. Did you see the bored gargoyle...More

Visiting Bayeux was an absolute delight. We were able to freely walk through the Cathedrale Notre-Dame early in the morning. A beautiful structure inside and out. The outside of the cathedral was very picturesque throughout the day with the changing light. Many captures of the...More

Walk the center isle that William the Conqueror walked. So much history! The church is beautiful but is undergoing a great deal of construction/repair. Can't wait to see it when completed and attend Mass.

What a peaceful wonderful visit. The cathedral sits majestically in the centre of town, and has a beautiful exterior. Inside it is as impressive and very well maintained. Do yourself a favour and take the time to do a short visit, it really is lovely.

We visit every European cathedral we come across. This one doesn’t disappoint. Lovely, very, very old and beautiful. Serene. It’s amazing. How did they manage to build it so long ago?

Someone told us the Notre Dame Cathedral in Bayeux was as large as the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. OK, we thought, we'll give it a whirl. We were blown away. I hope God doesn't strike me down for saying this, or that we get...More

Although the building is under renovation, you can see around a lot. There is a crypt to visit under the main altar. If you happen to be in town when there is a Concert, please don't miss it!

Loved the cathedral but a shame it is under renovation so a large amount was closed off. Around the chapels a lot of the information is in french only so not very easy to interpret.

They are unlikely to close the Cathedral entirely. It is a working church. There may be some scaffolding in places but you should still be able to get in and to wander around. It is a most beautiful place and you won't... More

The cathedral Notre Dame of Bayeux was dedicated with William the Conquer in attendance. The current building has many gothic and later additions. It is well worth seeing. It’s in Bayeux.
