Botanical garden and other discoveries




Listed in the inventory of historical monuments, the Bayeux Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful landscaped parks of the 19th century in Normandy. Created in 1859, this 2.6-hectare public garden is the work of the Bühler brothers, creators of the Parc de la Tête d'Or in Lyon and the Thabor in Rennes. The most spectacular element of this garden is a "weeping beech", classified as a natural monument since 1932 and labelled "remarkable tree of France" since 2000. A discovery tour, consisting of 17 information terminals, invites you to discover at your own walking pace, the botanical riches of the garden as well as historical anecdotes about the city.
