Travel Tips for Hastings

Beer festival

by Gili_S

Every year there is a beer festival and with my luck, it was exactly on the weekend that I was visiting the area, so, of course I couldn’t resist and visited the festival. The rest, I don’t really remember, the photos and my head were blurred ;-)

Net shops - the tall wooden huts

by Airpunk

At the foot of east hill you will find some tall wooden huts. These buildings are used for storage of fishing nets as well as other items and tools needed in the fishing industry. It is said, that their main purpose was to dry the fishing nets, but these were mostly dried on the beach where they could be extended to its full size and humidity can escape. The first "net shops" were built in the 19th century and owe their unsual size and shape to a tax law. Due to limited space, high ground taxes were implemented. So the fishermen built their shops tall to avoid the taxes. It is said, that the first of these huts were phased out boats which were set end in into the ground. This is not really proved, but a single hut was rebuilt in that way.

Between the huts, you will find some old fishing boats which belong to the Fishermen's museum.

Old Town - George Street

by Airpunk

The old town of Hastings is situated between West Hill and East Hill. Here, you will find a lot of pubs and restaurants as well as souvenir shops. George Street, at the foot of West Hill, is the heart of the old town. This is also the place where you can still some pre-georgian buildings.

From George Street, you have access to the steps leading to the top of West Hill and to the West Cliff funicular railway. For information about that, check out my tip about West Hill.

Hastings, East Sussex

by Mariajoy

"Things to do in Hastings"

Hastings - popular seaside resort on the East Sussex coast. Thousands flock here in the summer, particularly from London. If you want sticks of rock and Kiss Me Quick hats - this is the place to get them. If you don't want to be stepping over drunken semi-naked fat blokes with shaved heads and tattoos in the street don't come here in the summer!!! (Although "street drinking" restrictions have recently been implemented by Hastings Borough Council - I have yet to see much evidence of any action being taken against perpetrators)
