Battle, an East Sussex town best known for the Battle of Hastings, is a great place to visit. It’s situated some 50 miles away from London, 30 miles from Brighton and 20 miles from Lewes.

Also nearby are the towns of Hastings and Bexhill-on-Sea. You don’t have to go that far, however, to enjoy an Afternoon Tea in Battle. A cuppa and scones, anyone?

Most will know Battle for being the site where the infamous Norman Conquest began in 1066. However, there is much more to its story. From the 17th century, Battle grew in prominence due to its thriving gunpowder manufacturing industry.

In 1722, Daniel Defoe described the town as being “remarkable for little now, but for making the finest gunpowder.” Today, one might argue that the area boasts some of the finest Afternoon Tea Battle venues, too!

On your next visit, why not start by taking a tour of Battle Abbey and Battlefield. After embracing the town’s rich history, indulge with an Afternoon Tea in Battle. Expect a friendly face and professional service in whichever establishment you decide upon.
