Explore 1066 Country

With a spectacular combination of coast and countryside that's scattered with relics and ruins from the past, 1066 Country is the kind of place where you don't just learn about history, you live it.  Known world-wide for its heritage, 1066 Country offers visitors a rich historical experience.

The thriving market town of Battle is home to the battlefield where William the Conqueror claimed his right to the English throne at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.  The Edwardian seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea is the birthplace of British motor racing.  Europe's largest beach-launched fishing fleet can be seen in Hastings and you can also enjoy the picturesque old town.

Pevensey was the landing point for both Romans and Normans, while Herstmonceux with its telescope domes, windmill and castle turrets, sits modestly between Wealden hills and marshy levels. Rye is a maritime maze of medieval and Georgian buildings, its picturesque citadel a myriad of art, artifacts, curiosities and cosy pubs.  

If you want to get away from it all, explore 1066 Country's beautiful countryside with its dramatic coastline, ancient forests, fairytale castles, rich and varied wildlife and cosy country pubs.
