Unfolding England’s story

Named to commemorate the most famous conflict on English soil, this compact market town grew up alongside the 1066 battle site, tranquil medieval abbey and surrounding ancient woodlands – largely unchanged to this day.

Throughout the centuries we’ve hosted Normans and Saxons, gunpowder plotters and rock stars.

You’ll want to stay longer too.

Beautiful, big-hearted Battle: it’s yours to conquer.
