One of the most historic places in England and the site of a major turning point in our nation’s history, Battle is a picture postcard location. Many houses within Battle date from the 1700’s. The Almonry (place where alms were distributed to the poor) in the High Street dates back to 1090.
There are great eateries, funky independent shops and a lively community scene.
Battle is known for its celebratory bonfires (the town has suspected links to the 1605 Gunpowder Plot), battle re-enactments and annual events which include an arts festival.
Of course, history buffs will be in their element with so much to explore in the area. Surrounded by countryside there are plenty of paths for dog walkers, runners and bike enthusiasts away from the roads (which in the summer months can carry a large number of tourists). There’s also a sports centre with gym, dance classes, sports pitches and even a climbing wall.
Surprisingly for such a quiet town, over 100 trains pass through Battle every day on route to London, a journey that takes as little as 1 hour 25 minutes. 7 miles inland from Hastings, (a 15-minute drive) the town is also close to the A259 coastal road that sweeps along the coastline from Kent to Hampshire, taking in a number of famous sights such as Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.
