Tour the first castle built by William the Conqueror in 1067 at Hastings Castle, which now exists as ruins due to weather and wars. In a nearby tent, view a 20-minute film called "The 1066 Story," which highlights William's conquests and the castle's history. Afterwards, walk around the surviving walls and look for the dungeons, all the while surrounded by fantastic sea views.
