Discover the atmosphere of one of England’s most significant historic sites on an unforgettable day out.  In the year 1066, the armies of King Harold and William the Conqueror clashed here at the Battle of Hastings. Now, you can stand on the very spot where this decisive struggle was fought and England’s future decided. See the Harold stone, marking the spot where King Harold fell, or walk the battlefield trail to encounter carved wooden sculptures depicting Norman and Saxon soldiers. Enjoy the gatehouse exhibition revealing the abbey’s role in the country’s future, then head to the roof for stunning views of the battlefield. Take in the beautiful Sussex landscape, and enjoy the fresh air and open spaces surrounding the breath taking ruins of the Abbey built, by William shortly after his victory.

Andy Smith, August 2022

It is not only somewhere that dogs can be taken, with water bowls put out and treats available, but the English Heritage staff there always are extremely welcoming and make a fuss of every dog that visits. It's great for walks (around the abbey ruins and the Battle of Hastings battlefield and surrounding woodland) and dogs are also welcome in the cafe/restaurant. Battle Abbey makes a fabulous day out if you are interested in our history and heritage, or even just an hour or so if you are only passing through the area, but you can be sure of a warm welcome for your dog - and your will love the place! Mine certainly does!
