Visited the History House whilst wandering around the Old Town and realised it was a very interesting place tucked away. The May Day celebrations had recently finished and so most of the info was relating to that. Staff were friendly and ready for a chat and to give any information requested.

A group of volunteers run this small but informative establishment. Informative, friendly, excellent displays, and won't cost you a penny leaving you plenty of change to buy a book, guide, or memento of your visit which I would encourage you to do, as it helps fund the establishment..

Run by volunteers who are always helpful, the history house has ever changing exhibitions and events. It is closely associated with and overseen by The Old Hastings Preservation Society and is a very useful place to get information about the history of Hastings and the Old Town in particular.
