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.

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

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

You can’t imagine a more “romantic” site. Jumièges Abbey is a huge jumble of ruined buildings set in beautiful green parkland. The older of the two churches goes back to the 9th century, and some of these Carolingian ruins are still standing. The rest of...More
