Named after the most famous conflict on English soil, this compact market town grew up alongside the battleground, tranquil medieval abbey and surrounding ancient woodlands and is largely unchanged to this day.
At Battle’s beating heart is a bustling mix of independent shops and businesses.
At the northern end of the High Street is the Almonry, originally built in 1090, which houses the Battle Museum of Local History. Here you’ll find the world’s oldest Guy Fawkes – or at least his head, which is made of pear wood, and his silk cloak. Thought to be more than 200 years old, he is still in active service and leads the Battel Bonfire Boyes on their fiery procession through the town each November.
Near the museum is a striking sculpture by Guy Portelli, in the centre of a roundabout. Depicting a Norman soldier on horseback, the sculpture was installed in 2016 to commemorate the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.
At the southern end is Battle Abbey, and behind it the once-bloody battlefield, now a peaceful meadow filled with wild flowers and birdsong. Here you can stand at the very spot where King Harold is said to have died, and admire the ruins of the grand abbey built by William the Conqueror as a penance for the bloodshed. You’ll also find tranquil gardens, historic buildings, educational displays and a year-round programme of events.
Just outside the town, pathways and cycle tracks etch landscape, taking you to places as peaceful as anywhere in southern England. Visit Battle Great Wood, over 200 acres of mainly coniferous woodland and heath with meandering streams and wide, well-managed paths perfect for walking and cycling. These woodlands are home to deer, badgers, birds such as the nightjar, tree pipit and crossbills, and many common butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. In spring you’ll find carpets of bluebells and wood anemones, and in autumn the forest floor hosts weird and wonderful fungi.
The 1066 Country Walk runs through the wood, marking the path William the Conqueror took with his invading army of Norman troops after landing at Pevensey. It continues on to Winchelsea and Rye, spanning 31 miles in total.
