1066 Country Marketing Membership

The Battle of Hastings was one of the most important events to take place in English history, making 1066, and Hastings, known around the world, and so giving us a real boost in terms of marketing :- nearly everybody has heard of 1066 and/or the Battle of Hastings!

Today tourism in 1066 Country is worth over £500m, and supports over 11,000 jobs in 1066 Country: - and we want you to benefit from this important part of our economy. The 1066 Country Marketing partnership is committed to helping tourism businesses locally, through our joint marketing campaigns (including this website), our work with the travel trade, our networking events, and through being the local voice of tourism in the area.

Our executive board includes representatives of Hastings Borough Council, Rother District Council, Wealden District Council, and Tourism South East, and, importantly, private sector representatives too. Partners include English Heritage, the National Trust, and nearly 100 private sector businesses that have an interest in tourism. If you are not already a partner, we’d love you to join us!
