This is where, in 1066, the armies of King Harold and William the Conqueror clashed at the Battle of Hastings. It was a date and an event that altered England's Britain's history. You can stand on the battlefield. Explore the ruins of the abbey. Wander amongst the statues of the Normans and the Saxons. From the roof of the abbey you can gain a different perspective, looking out across the battlefield after taking in the exhibits, the displays and the stories within the abbey’s gatehouse. A place full of atmosphere. Quite an experience to find oneself on a site where the world changed 1,000 years ago.
