The ultimate bespoke language trip to Rouen.
Rouen is a city on the River Seine in the north of France. It is the capital of the region of Normandy. Formerly one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, Rouen was the seat of the Exchequer of Normandy during the Middle Ages.
It was one of the capitals of the Anglo-Norman dynasties, which ruled both England and large parts of modern France from the 11th to the 15th centuries.
With its soaring Gothic cathedral, beautifully restored medieval quarter, imposing ancient churches, excellent museums and vibrant cultural life, Rouen is one of Normandy’s most engaging and historically rich destinations.
The city has endured a turbulent history. It was devastated by fire and plague several times during the Middle Ages and was occupied by the English during the Hundred Years War.
The young French heroine Joan of Arc (Jeanne d’Arc) was tried for heresy and burned at the stake in the central square in 1431.
School trips to Rouen. Let us take the strain.
Very picturesque, the streets of the old districts, lined with old half-timbered houses, are the perfect place for a stroll. The Damiette, Martainville, and Saint Romanesque streets are particularly rich in timber-framed houses. The Vieux-Marché square is where Joan of Arc was burned in 1431. Today, the Sainte-Jeanne-d'Arc church is a very original modern building that sits in the centre of the square.
The Fine Art Museum (Musée des Beaux Arts) houses collections of paintings from the 16th to 20th centuries. A ceramics museum is also open to the public.
In a large, circular column on the waterfront, Panorama XXL is a massive 360-degree exhibition offering in-depth exploring of one astonishing landscape, created with photographs, drawings, digital images and recorded audio.
Past years have featured the Great Barrier Reef, Amazonia, Ancient Rome and Rouen in 1431 – often with sunrise and sunset generating different moods, as well as storms. A 15m-high viewing platform in the middle of the room gives a fine vantage point over the scene.
Rouen’s stunning Gothic cathedral, built between the late 12th and 16th centuries, was famously the subject of a series of canvases painted by Monet at various times of the day and year. The 75m-tall Tour de Beurre was financed by locals in return for being allowed to eat butter during Lent – or so the story goes.
