King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, are currently on a trip to Germany – it’s the monarch’s first overseas visit since becoming king.

Our ‘Community Rail Coronation Connections’ campaign is highlighting Battle Abbey on the 1066 Line (Hastings to Tonbridge).

You can follow in the footsteps of William the Conqueror and visit Battle Abbey where the last Anglo-Saxon King of England, King Harold II, was killed during the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Taking the train from central London to Battle Station emits 72% less in greenhouse gases than driving a car on the same journey.

Please check with the venue for opening times and directions from the railway station.
