Overview

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.

Well run attraction, with a good film in the visitors centre. A silly timeline in the wall (20th century was WW1, WW2 and England won the World Cup!)

Grounds and ruins interesting, unfortunately main buildings are in use and out of bounds. Nice cafe and museum but parking expensive

I've been a life member for quite a few years. I just paid them a one off fee and now I'm entitled to get into any English Heritage place for free for the rest of my life.
