Local Activities: There is a lot to see in Hastings to keep you busy for many days.
The most exciting thing in this area at the moment is the lovely new Hastings Pier. After the devastating fire in 2010, along with lottery funding and big fundraising across the local area, the refurbished pier re-opened to the public in 2016. It is a really special place to visit on a sunny day, to enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline and there are some special places to have a bite to eat there too: The Pavilion Restaurant and Bar, The Deck Roof Terrace Cafe, The Fish and Chip Bar, Billycan Coffee, Ralph and Poppy on the Pier serving amazing local chocolates and sweet treats.
Whether you wish to explore the many historic locations around this area in: Battle, Rye and Bexhill-on-sea, or prefer to enjoy the coastline and take some leisurely walks, you will be assured that you can do it all based in this wonderful location.
Hastings is one of Britain's oldest fishing ports. Fishing boats have worked from the beach in front of the old town for over a thousand years and are now a tourist attraction. The Fisherman’s Museum contains one of these fishing boats and the building was constructed around it.
Nearby Castles and Forts can be found at: Pevensey, Herstmonceux, Scotney, Bodiam and Camber. The Bodiam Castle in particular is a well preserved and beautiful castle with a moat in a lovely river location.
There are also many amazing festivals around this area throughout the year, which are well-worth attending, showing how vibrant this community can be.
Hastings enjoys loads of sun in the summer.
Seaside and Seafood Fare: Hastings is one of only a few of the old style fishing locations where you will see every day the fishing vessels hauled onto the beach after the early morning fish. As a result the Fish and Chips in any of the local sea front cafes/restaurants is about as fresh as it could be. Some sellers along the front sell cups of shelled prawns, clams, cockles and other types of seafood for you to enjoy. The fish shop nestled amongst the Fisherman’s Wharf (the old black timber constructions), is definitely worth a visit and is fun for children to see all the varieties available.
A favourite restaurant is Cosmo’s (Chinese/Asian) on the Sea-front. Enjoy an all you can eat buffet while a Teppanyaki chef cooks your choice of fresh food while you wait. Other Asian delights of Sushi and the usual Duck pancakes, tiger prawns etc are on offer and there is even chicken nuggets and chips for the less adventurous in your party. Definitely worth a visit after a day of working up an appetite at the seaside!
