DogPeople Says : 1066 Batlefield and Abbey

Hamish visited on a chilly March 07 day. He was welcomed at reception and was able to walk the whole Abbey site (well the sections open to the public – everywhere but a school) but was not allowed in the visitor centre or café. The Abbey and Battlefield walks are backed by an excellent audio tour. This helps bring the history of this beautiful and evocative site to life. We were en-route for a weekend away so had limited time … but this would be a good day out for the whole family. Hamish would happily have walked the grounds twice on a fine day to allow the rest of the family to enjoy the visitor centre in shifts.
