Caen is the capital of Lower Normandy and lays between two rivers the Orne and the Odon. Caen was one of the many cities to suffer the ill-effects of World War II.
The city was bombed on D-Day and is said to have burned for a week before being liberated. The damage was on a grand scale and the only vestiges of the past to remain were the ramparts of the Chateau and the two great abbeys. These were built by William the Conqueror when he founded the City in the 11th Century.
The beaches are the sites of D-Day landings and some of the best to visit are Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches (northeast of Bayeux) and Pointe du Hoc on Omaha Beach. Caen has excellent shopping facilities and many other historic places to visit.
England attracts numerous visitors each year with its diverse culture, varied landscapes and rich history.
Many tourists stick to London with its many free museums and world famous monuments like Big Ben but England has a lot to offer you besides the capital. Don't just stick to London next time you visit.
There is plenty more to England than the capital city. The best way to explore it? In your own car of course.
Don't forget England is the home of Manchester - birthplace of Oasis and home of two of Europe's greatest football teams as well as the world famous university towns of Oxford or Cambridge.
