Welcome to Hastings

William the Conqueror and the famous battle etched Hastings place in our nation’s history. More than 950 years later the town has become a popular destination for Londoner´s looking to get out of the city and enjoy the coastal air. Neatly tucked away between East Hill and West Hill, the old town is becoming increasingly popular among younger creatives priced out of the city. “Shoreditch-on-Sea”, as it is affectionately known, is undergoing a new rejuvenation after the old pier reopened last year and increased investment in the town led to it appearing on the Times 10 Coolest seaside towns list in 2015. As Brighton and Eastbourne prices increase, Hastings provides a cultured alternative full of warmth and unbeatable fish and chips.
