When I walked through the Medieval Gates to see Battle Abbey, I didn't realize the beautiful building and garden's in front of me, were OFF LIMIT'S!

You see, this is the Battle Abbey School, an independent co-educational day and boarding school, and it was the senior school located in the ruined abbey complex.

The Abbot's House, is the main school building of the Senior School. Luckily, when most of the Abbey building's were destroyed under instruction's from King Henry VIII, the 13th century Abbot's House survived. The school took over the property in 1922.

Address: High street, Battle

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
