INDEPENDENT, ORIGINAL BATTLE

Wander along the High Street or delve into the yards and twittens in Battle and you’ll soon find the spirit of independence is alive and well in its many boutique businesses and shops. Pick up unique, handcrafted gifts or needles and wool to make your own; enjoy home-made cakes or a meal prepared with local produce; satisfy your inner bookworm at the bookshop or sip champagne while enjoying a cut-throat shave. Our High Street is full of surprises.

BATTLE, YOURS TO CONQUER

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.
