Hastings is a vibrant mix of business, tourism, leisure and education. It has a thriving arts community and is home to the UK’s steepest funicular cliff railway, which provides stunning views of the town, Hastings National Park, and across the English Channel.

Hasting's Pier was re-opened last summer, and captures all the charm and elegance of the original; offering open-air cinema shows, yoga and star-gazing. The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Who and Jimi Hendrix all played here in their heyday and since re-opening, the Pier has held sold out gigs for Dizzy Rascal, Madness, the Levellers, and DJ sensations MK and Hannah Wants.

Throughout the year, it’s hard not to get carried away with all the parties and festivals going on in the town.

The Seafood and Wine Festival, Jack in the Green, Pirates Day, and its very own version of Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday are some of the best.

So come and visit and see what Hastings has to offer.
