Battle Abbey and the 1066 battlefield is a great attraction for anyone interested in noble and military history. Located in the town of Battle in East Sussex, the abbey and battlefield are the site of the famous Battle of Hastings, in which William the Conqueror defeated King Harold in 1066.

The abbey was founded in 1070 by William the Conqueror as a penance for the destruction and loss of life that occurred during the battle. Visitors can also walk through the battlefield and learn about the events that took place there.

In addition to the abbey and battlefield, visitors can also explore the town of Battle, which has a number of other historic landmarks and a charming atmosphere.
