In the rest of the town you’ll find some of the best fish and chips shops including: The Cod Father, The Old Town Fryer and the Kingfisher.
There is a row of arcades and amusements, a Go-Kart track and the UK’s largest adventure golf complex.
To the east, you’ll find a glorious stretch of beach, with Europe’s largest beach-launched fishing fleet, the iconic black fishing huts, with views of the East Hill in the background.
The Jerwood Gallery has very much made itself at home in this part of town since opening in 2011 and offers a ‘uniquely British experience’.
Heading west, you’ll find the famous Hastings Pier. After being burnt down in 2010, the pier re-opened 6 years later. It acknowledges the history and charm of the old one by using some of the old planks in the restoration and was shortlisted for a number of awards in 2017.
Since re-opening, the pier has been a hive of activity with open-air yoga, cinema screenings, a circus, and sold out festivals. The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Who and Jimi Hendrix all played here in their heyday, and to pick up where they left off, Dizzy Rascal, Boyzone, Madness, the Levellers, MK, and Gorgon City have all played to sell-out crowds.
Hastings knows how to throw a good party. Throughout the year there are so many events and parties that get the whole community together to celebrate. The Seafood and Wine Festival, Jack in the Green, Pirates Day, Old Town Carnival Week, and its very own version of Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday, are some of the best.
