In Her Words - A Normandy Adventure

Unlocking Normandy's Secrets - Polly Kenyon's Guided Tours, Your Key

A perfect bilingual British native from the Anglo-Norman island of Jersey, and in France since a long time, I’m settled since 20 years in Normandy, where I’ve lived in all the main cities.

I became a tour guide after feeling that all the aspects of the trade were a perfect fit to my temperament: travel, communication and culture. Culture including many facets: history, geography, art and architecture, popular culture, cuisine and more.

I’m starting to master well the main Norman sites after many years guiding on them, namely the outstanding incomparable Mont Saint Michel; the D-Day Beaches, beautiful beaches in themselves and bearing witness to that terrible period which was WW2; beautiful history-packed cities such as Rouen, Caen, le Havre. The geologically beautiful Etretat, charming Honfleur, Monet’s House in Giverny.

Then there are less well-known places but well worth the detour: the basilica of Sainte Thérèse in Lisieux, Veules-les-Roses, Dieppe. Normandy cuisine is quite succulent, namely the cheese and apple produce. A visit to a Calvados distillery is often a part of a day tour.

From Jersey to Normandy, I’m Polly Kenyon, blending British and French cultures for two decades. As a guide, my passion for travel, communication, and culture unfolds through history, art, and cuisine.

Navigating treasures like Mont Saint Michel and hidden gems like Etretat, join me in savoring Normandy’s delights. Let’s embark on a journey through the captivating tapestry of Normandy, creating lasting memories against the backdrop of timeless charm.
