1066 Countryside

Rolling hills, steam railways and fairytale castles

Rural 1066 Country is so vast and unspoilt that even the most intrepid ramblers could lose themselves in any direction for days on end.  Even the most casual walk through our countryside offers a spectacular tour of the area's finest sights and sounds and takes in key historic sites like the remains of Pevensey Castle and Battle Abbey together with the field on which King Harold fell. 

As well as boasting a selection of fabulous medieval towns 1066 Country’s is very close to the glorious countryside of the High Weald.  This area’s rolling sandstone hills meet the sea with fabulous beaches in between Rye and Hastings which are ideal for exploring rock pools and finding dinosaur footprints.  The landscape provides a setting for festivals that celebrate the historic period and events like the re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings and the medieval festival at Herstmonceux.  Key nature reserves provide the opportunity to explore special habitats like the rare meadows, heath and sandrock at Hastings Country Park; ancient woodland at Brede High Woods and wetland at Rye Bay Nature Reserve.

Explore Drusillas Park offering the best family fun day out; say Hello Kitty and visit hundreds of zoo animals.
