On the steep banks of the Bresle River, Eu is a charming and historic northern French town. Despite its small size, this town draws a steady stream of tourists with its château and national forest.
The principle city of its canton, Eu was founded in the 10th century. The Château d'Eu was built in the 1500s at the town centre. Henry I, along with a few other notable figures, was entombed here. The castle now doubles as a museum which escorts visitors on an informative tour of the region's history.
Other notable sites include the Chapel of Saint Laurent, which sits on a hill overlooking the city. The church was built to accommodate pilgrims coming to venerate St Lawrence O'Toole, the archbishop of Dublin who came to Eu in the 12th century. The Collégiale Notre Dame is the most impressive church in Eu, and its contents include St Lawrence O'Toole's tomb and an early 17th century organ.
The surrounding forest covers more than 22,000 acres and hosts a number of hiking trails and scenic views of the river valley. Stop into the local tourism office for information on specific hikes. Wildlife in the park includes deer, badgers and wild boar.
Public transportation around Eu consists mostly of taxis. It's possible to reach the city from Paris by train or by hire car, though the latter is more desirable, as it frees tourists up to follow their own itinerary. We offer affordable car hire to and from Eu which can be easily arranged online.
