Trains to Battle

The Grade II listed station at Battle in East Sussex opened in 1852 and is one of the best surviving examples of small Gothic-style stations in the country. Designed by William Tress, the station combined the latest Victorian technology with architectural features that echoed those of Battle Abbey nearby. These days almost half a million passengers a year pass through the station, many on their way to visit the remains of the abbey and the other heritage sites associated with the famous battle which gives the area its name - 1066's Battle of Hastings. It's all about ten minutes' walk from the station or less than five minutes by bus from just opposite Station Approach on Lower Lake. Georgian buildings line the town's High Street, which is a treat of independent shops and cafes north from the abbey entrance. Many of the other buildings date from the 1700s and the council offices are in the Almonry, built in 1090.
