There is an audio tour which is complete with battle sounds and voices to create the atmosphere of this epic war as you roam the abbey ruins and stand where King Harold died. The Battle of Hastings took place in October 1066. Duke William of Normandy defeated the British King Harold and it is known as the most famous battle ever fought in the country. William of Normandy was then crowned as King William I which meant the end of Anglo Saxon England! This marked the advent of Common Law in England which still affects us today 1000 years later. The abbey was built in 1070 by King William then known as ‘the conqueror’. It was a symbol of his victory and served as a memorial to the dead whose corpses covered the fields for over 100 acres of the battle site. It stands today as a symbol of Norman triumph over England and its said that the high altar in the church itself stands on the spot that King Harold died on. Abbey museum explores the history of the abbey and contains a selection of historical items found during excavations of the site. Children will also enjoy the Discovery Centre which is open at weekends during the season and throughout the school holidays.Parking (charged) Cafe Picnic area Shop Toilets Disabled access Dogs on leads Museum Gardens Audio Tours (foreign language) Family Friendly Baby change Bottle and food warmers Play areas Pushchairs allowedSee the 1066: The Battle for England exhibition.
