Review of Abbaye de Jumieges

Abbaye de Jumieges
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Jumieges
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2018

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
