Hiring a car is probably the easiest way to get around Normandy, but if you are coming from England it may be easier to bring your own car on one of the ferry crossings
The best way to have lunch is going to the local street markets and buying a baguette and filling (I recommend the amazing goats cheese) and eat in the street while people watching
In the summer months from 7pm-10pm there is a sound and light display in the abbey grounds on Mont-Saint-Michel
Good to know
The currency is Normandy, France is Euros.
The best time to visit is Spring to Autumn as visiting the beaches in the winter would not be as comfortable.
The Utah Beach Museum, is within an original German bunker and has one of the only B-26 airplanes left.
The easiest way to get to Normandy from England (depending on where exactly you are coming from) is driving onto a ferry and then driving to Normandy. The most convenient route is most likely the Portsmouth-Caen ferry crossing.
The tide determines when access is available to Mont-Saint-Michel so bear that in mind when you are planning your trip.
