Bonfire of the Vanities
Oct 2021 • Family
On the 16th of October watched an impressive torch light display through the old town. The people had varied costumes and many played drums and other instruments. The group congregated on the beach at an enormous bonfire. There was then a spectacular firework display. Interesting but not very good in terms of carbon emissions.

Great seaside town
Aug 2021
Lots to do and see, if you like seaside towns. Good food and bars with all the quirkiness of an old fishing town. Plenty for kids to do including the 3 crazy golf courses smugglers caves ruins. Pebble beach though as with a lot of the beaches in the south. Having said that, there is a wonderful white sand beach not far away in Camber which is stunning!

Nice first visit
Oct 2021
First time visiting Hastings. The old town is probably the best part with its quirky little shops and plenty of pubs, wine bars and cafes. Very friendly people and a pleasant atmosphere. Lovely beach with good facilities in parts.

Vibrant, Colourful and fun!

We had a great time staying in George Street, which is a lively and colourful street, packed with interesting shops, restaurants and bars. Only 150m from the seafront, it was easy to see the sights and feel part of all the action.

Scenic Shopping
Sep 2021
One of my favourite shopping streets in the UK. There are so many unique and individual shops selling items you just don't find anywhere else, lovely antique shops, historic pubs and nice cafes/restaurants to eat in.

The old town is one of the best reasons to visit Hastings.

Old and tired
Sep 2021 • Couples
Hastings is a lovely place let down by beggars and drunks
They stand around the signs that say no public alcohol and actually live in tents on the street.
Town is full of fast delivery drivers cars mopeds and cycles unpleasant place to be at night.
Litter and double parking is also a huge problem.

Nice people,oldy worldy place
Sep 2021
The town needs a good spruce up. There is very little to do. The pubs look dark & dingy, very 'oldy worldy' but the staff are very friendly. A lot of attractions were closed because of Covid I was told. It would be nice to have wooden walkways into the sea so you didn't have to walk on hard stones which killed my feet. Because the beach is hard on your feet I can't see myself going back there, but for most it's worth 2-3 days but no more. I went to Battle Abbey which was a nice experience though disappointing that you couldn't view inside the old buildings because they were being used as a school. Also went on the East Sussex steam railway from Tenterden & visited Bodiam castle which is very beautiful, a nice day out.
