Private guided 1066 tours led by local historian and storyteller Heather Wheeler
1066 was a year full of tension, drama and bloodshed. During that year England had four kings, was invaded twice and fought three major battles.
Our three available 1066 tours bring the story of 1066 and the Norman Conquest to life.
Our Pevensey tour visits the site where William of Normandy landed, the Norman castle at Pevensey and follows part of the route taken by the Norman soldiers as they marched to Hastings.
The Battle Tour begins at a point overlooking the place where Harold’s army camped the night before the battle. We then walk the perimeter of the battlefield before viewing the spot where Harold lost his life. We also explore the Abbey built by William after the battle.
Our Complete Tour combines the Pevensey and Battle Tours.
