Things to do when Visiting Battle

Battle, the town itself actually grew from the Abbey, and looking down the High Street in Battle you cannot help but notice the rather striking Abbey gatehouse. While the town itself features some distinguished Georgian buildings along the High Street, the cottages and houses nearer to the abbey date from around 1700. As well as local provisions shops, there are a few wonderful curio shops in the town that are well worth a visit, and a browse through the collectible, antiques crafts and items of interest on offer will often produce an exciting find. Keep an eye open for the country market on Friday’s during January and February and Saturdays during the rest of the year – a great place to stock up the larder of your holiday cottage! If there is a scientist within your family or group, a visit to Herstmonceux Science Centre should be made.
