Hastings & 1066 Country Heritage

With a spectacular combination of coast and countryside, 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!

1066 Country is now recognised throughout the world as a leading brand of historical significance.  The thriving market town of Battle is home to the very spot where King Harold fell during the fateful conflict.

Hastings boasts a fascinating fishing heritage and is home to Europe's largest beach-launched fishing fleet.  The Edwardian seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea is the home of the De La Warr Pavilion.

Pevensey was the landing point for both the Romans and Normans.  Famous for its pretty cobbled streets, Rye is also a maritime maze of Medieval and Georgian buildings.
