1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and BattlefieldSUITABLE FOR
Hear the clash of sword on shield and feel the thunder of galloping hooves, as over 600 warriors clash in our infamous Battle of Hastings re-enactment. The biggest event in the entire English Heritage calendar, the Battle of Hastings is an epic festival of displays, activities and re-enactments to keep you awestruck all weekend.
Speak to Norman and Saxon soldiers in their encampments by the famous battlefield, and learn about life in an 11th century army. Meet falconers and admire majestic birds of prey, try your hand at archery and watch superb displays of cavalry horsemanship. Muster your kids for a junior battle of Hastings, or wander along medieval traders row to pick up a special souvenir. You can even get into the spirit of your Norman and Saxon ancestors by trying a horn of mead!
