Things to do

1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield

Battle is just over two miles from Beech Estate Campsite.

Kids can learn about the battle between King Harold and William the Conqueror at this English Heritage site, the centre of 1066 country. It’s the closest tourist attraction to Beech Estate Campsite. There are often special events and workshops for children, especially in the school holidays and there is a lovely cafe on site.

The battle between the Saxon king Harold and Norman William the Conqueror changed the course of English history and English Heritage now looks after both the remains of the associated St Martin’s Abbey, which was built by the victorious William the Conqueror, and the battlefield. You can visit the site and learn all about the battle through videos, an audio tour and displays. English Heritage also organises special events throughout the year.
