Explore the atmospheric ruins of William the Conqueror’s famous abbey. Stand on the very spot where King Harold is said to have died. Admire the stonework and acoustics of the 13th century rib-vaulted dormitory range, including the Novices Common Room. You can now also climb the staircase to explore the first floor too.
“The abbey gatehouse is now open, with a new exhibition examining the important stories of the abbey in the years after 1066. Come and see all the work that’s been done, and gain access to the extra floor, previously closed to visitors.
The new gatehouse rooftop viewing platform is also open, with a stunning panoramic view out across the town and the 1066 landscape.
Explore online some of the highlights from the collection of paintings and artefacts, some of which can be seen at Battle Abbey.
Set the scene with our introductory film, vividly re-telling the story of the great battle. The visitor centre now includes new interactive displays.
Find out what England was like at the time of the conquest, and learn more about the events that led up to the fateful day.”
