Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Bayeux
The Normans may have conquered England, but Bayeux locals, beyond the main tourist sites, don't necessarily speak English, so you should have a few versatile French phrases to smooth your path. Follow local habits and dress respectfully when visiting the cathedral, local churches, and war memorials. In Normandy, locals are as likely to drink cider or beer as wine (the Bayeux tapestry depicts beer as the everyday choice of Normans) while the local calvados apple brandy is the traditional digestif after a meal of hearty Norman fare.
