    Battle Abbey is a partially ruined Benedictine abbey in Battle, East Sussex, England. The abbey was built on the site of the Battle of Hastings and dedicated to St Martin of Tours. The Grade I listed site is now operated by English Heritage as 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield, which includes the abbey buildings and ruins, a visitor centre with a film and exhibition about the battle, audio tours of the battlefield site, and the monks’ gatehouse with recovered artefacts. The visitor centre includes a children’s discovery room and a café, and there is an outdoor themed playground.

    Discover the newly opened play area and family exhibition, shop, eat and explore. Your dog is welcome but restricted to outside areas.

    • Let out your best battle cry and strike a pose beside the wooden sculptures of Norman and Saxon soldiers which line the footpath around the battlefield.
    • Look out for the stone which marks the high altar William the Conqueror built on the spot where King Harold fell in the Battle of Hastings. The stone was recently moved, as we learn more about the architecture of the church William built on the battlefield.
    • See if you can spot the stone faces peering down at you from the walls of the gatehouse passage.
