1066 History

Sussex is home to plenty of history, and probably known most prominently for ‘The Battle of Hastings’. The battle took place here in October 1066, funnily enough not actually in Hastings, but on a little inland in Battle. With other historic landmarks such as The Long Man of Wilmington, Pevensey Castle, Arundel Castle, Anne of Cleves House, and Michelham Priory - there’s plenty of historic buildings and landscapes to explore.
