1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield Gatehouse @ English Heritage
During the anniversary year of the battle of Hastings, British Tours will be offering specialist tours of Norman and medieval historical sites. These tours will feature sites such as Battle Abbey, the religious site founded by William the conqueror to commemorate the fight. The abbey marks the place of one of the most decisive battles in English history, and one that founded a line of Kings and Queens that extends to current Queen! Other sites visitors can see, such as the White Tower of the Tower of London, are part of the large scale roll out of Norman culture in England, an impressive building project that was a sign of William’s new control over the country. Alternatively, visitors will have the chance to visit some medieval locations such as Bodiam Castle, a 14th century moated castle which was built to defend the south from the French in the hundred years war! It also passed through several hands during (and survived) two of England turbulent periods – the War of the Roses, and the English Civil War!
