Places to Visit
James Andrews School of Golf is ideally located in the heart of stunning 1066 country, just a few miles from the famous Battle Abbey built on the site of the Battle of Hastings. When taking a break from golf why not explore the historic town of Battle, shop in the medieval streets of Rye or take a stroll along the renowned sandy beaches at Camber.
Bodiam and Herstmonceux Castles are just a short drive, as is Bateman’s – the home of Rudyard Kipling where he created such classic works as ‘The Jungle Book’. Or on a nice day why not visit one of our local vineyards and bask in our glorious countryside (designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
The Kent & East Sussex Steam Railway is another top attraction. The line weaves a picturesque route through the rolling countryside of the Weald to the open tranquillity of the Rother Valley, where the line terminates just a stone’s throw from the National Trust castle at Bodiam. And to invoke further nostalgia why not check out award-winning Yesterday’s World in nearby Battle, which hosts over 100,000 nostalgic artefacts over 4 floors in a charming medieval house and country garden that the whole family can enjoy.
