1066 Battle of Hastings Private Tour

1 review
Without a hire car, exploring the Sussex towns and sites linked to England’s 1066 Battle of Hastings is nigh-on impossible in a day from London. Ideal for time-pressed travelers, this private tour covers the key locations with ease, by private car. Visit Pevensey and Hastings, and walk the actual battlefield at Battle Abbey, all while a guide shares facts and nuggets you might otherwise miss. Entry fees are included.
US$438.68 per adult

We were SO welcomed to this gorgeous little museum, with kind ladies pointing out interesting aspects as well as answering our questions. We were fascinated by the range of items in this small museum, from flints to WW2 and especially thrilled with the axe head & history of Battle “extra” tapestries and personal insights into making those! Super little shop with a particularly good range of books. Thank you for this super experience.

This is a great little museum. It gives a very good history of the town from the Norman conquest onwards. In addition to this they have the only battle-axe from the battle.

We had already visited Battle Abbey when we spotted this museum, which is run by volunteers. I’m so glad we went in. The volunteer who spoke to us, showing us details of the Bayeux Tapestry was so engaging & knowledgeable that we were totally infected by his enthusiasm. Thank you!
