Outing to Bateman's and Battle Abbey Wed. 10th July 2019
17 Jan 2019 - 06:35 BY
Bateman’s was the home of Rudyard Kipling and his wife for many years. The National Trust maintains it as it was in Kipling’s time, including fascinating displays of Kipling’s manuscripts and published work, his art collection, his Nobel prize and his Rolls Royce. The gardens are world famous and our visit is timed to see them at their full romantic best when the lilies and roses are at their height. Our ticket will enable us to spend the morning exploring at will.
We will then travel to Battle Abbey where the exhibition '1066: the Battle for England' brings the background and impact of the Battle of Hastings vividly to life. We can then explore the battle site at our own pace using individual audio guides which explain in detail how the battle was fought. It is well worth visiting Battle Abbey, built to celebrate William the Conqueror's victory, and marking the spot where king Harold allegedly died.
There are refreshment and picnic facilities available at both Bateman’s and Battle but they are not included in the cost of the trip.
Tickets are on sale from February onwards and for further details contact Anne Freimanis on 01707 323277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
