Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Stand at the centre of where England's future was fought. Imagine and discover the stories unfold, brought to life in the exhibition and in audio as you follow the footsteps of the Norman & Saxon soldiers. Watch the compelling film about the Norman invasion, then plan your own attack on the country's most famous battlefield. See the new wood carved sculpture trail around the battlefield, experience the stunning 360 views from the new rooftop viewing platforms, and take your time to explore the monastic ruins. For kids we now also have a new kids natural play area, and a fun kids trail. Make sure you experience the atmosphere for yourself.

“English Heritage site”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

We have joined NT, and NGS this year... but there is HHA, and EH ... all adds up to be expensive. £58 for a senior couple. Why do English residents have to pay to see their heritage? Lots of foreign tourists pay enough to support?
Ground closed as muddy when we visited.

“Yet another good English Heritage site”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is yet another good English Heritage site. This was our first time here. The ruins of the abbey are very complete. One can get a good picture of how big it used to be. The audio tour is excellent as always.

Small downside is the fact that this is a very important site for history. So there were various school trips there also which gave the feeling of crowdedness.
