Taverny is a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 21.2 km (13.2 mi) from the center of Paris.

Inhabitants are called Tabernacians.


In 1806 the commune of Taverny merged with the neighboring commune of Saint-Leu, resulting in the creation of the commune of Saint-Leu-Taverny.

In 1821 the commune of Saint-Leu-Taverny was demerged. Thus, Taverny and Saint-Leu were both restored as separate communes.

On 30 March 1922, a part of the territory of Taverny was detached and merged with a part of the territory of Montigny-lès-Cormeilles and a part of the territory of Pierrelaye to create the commune of Beauchamp.


Taverny is served by two stations on the Transilien Paris – Nord suburban rail line: Vaucelles and Taverny.
