The South East England region
With a spectacular combination of coast and countryside that's scattered with relics and ruins from the past. Known world-wide for its heritage, 1066 Country offers visitors a rich historical experience.
The thriving market town of Battle is home to the very spot where King Harold fell during the fateful conflict. The Edwardian seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea is the birthplace of British motor racing. Europe's largest beach-launched fishing fleet can be seen in Hastings and you can also enjoy the picturesque Old Town. Pevensey was the landing point for both the Romans and the Normans. Rye is a maritime maze of Medieval and Georgian buildings, whilst Camber Sands has vast expanses of beach to enjoy.
If you want to get away from it all, explore 1066 Country's beautiful countryside with its dramatic coastline, ancient forests, fairytale castles, rich and varied wildlife and cosy country pubs.
Travelling westward across Romney Marsh, the distinctive outline of Rye can be seen in the distance. It rises above the level green pastures, stretching from the sea to the far hills which formed the shoreline before the marsh was drained.
Once surrounded by sea, this fortified hilltop town played an important role in the defence of the south coast of England. These days, the river no longer harbours warships and is home to the local fishing fleet.
Meandering for over one and a half miles from Rye to the coast, the river forms part of the picturesque scenery visible from several vantage points in and around the citadel of Rye.
St Mary's church tower (usually open to the public) offers the best viewpoint to show the terracotta roofs of the many timbered houses. These ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages, once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen, regularly attract film crews in search of historical settings for period productions.
Many authors, musicians, artists and celebrities have made Rye their home, a medieval haven periodically visited by Royalty. In 1573 the title "Rye Royale" was bestowed upon the town by Queen Elizabeth I after a three day stay.
The sheer concentration of living history packed into this vibrant market town makes it the ideal base for a holiday of discovery, or a relaxing short break. There are many comfortable and charming inns, coffee shops, antique shops and restaurants.
