About the 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield

English Heritage bills 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield as 'the landscape where England's future was fought' - this is where King Harold's Anglo-Saxons met William the Conqueror's Norman invaders for a decisive battle that would shape the future of the nation. Nowadays the battlefield has a sombre yet peaceful mood, scattered with wildflowers and surrounded by bird-filled trees and hedgerows. For a blow-by-blow account of the battle, explore the field with the aid of the English Heritage audio guide.

Next up, head for the abbey ruins and follow in the footsteps of William the Conqueror. Take in the inspiring 13th century architecture and stonework and visit the exact spot where King Harold is said to have died. There's yet more history to be found in the Gatehouse Museum, located in the former 14th century abbey gatehouse. See life through the eyes of the monks who once inhabited this great space, and examine ancient artefacts found in the ruins of the old monastery. If you're in need of a break after all that, then make your way to the Battle Abbey cafe for a spot of afternoon tea and cake in beautiful historic surroundings.
