Attraction Information

Curious About Hastings gives an fascinating and entertaining glimpse into what makes this historic and charming seaside town what it is.

Resident or just visiting you are guaranteed to spot things you have never noticed before. Enjoy our walks separately, or join them together to form one longer walk, depending upon your available time and energy and how many of our suggested things to do and see on the way distract you!

Walk 1: Old Town Circular

Starting at Old Town's former Town Hall you begin by exploring the heart of this fascinating area of Hastings, with its ‘heady bohemian atmosphere', roughly corresponding to the extent of the town prior to the 19th century. Pass its many quaint buildings and quirky shops, before descending to its shingle beach, home to the biggest beach-launched fishing fleet in England, before making your way back to the old Town Hall.

Old Town to Castle

This walk takes you along the sea front at Hastings Old Town, before bending back through a busy and bustling street with its many interesting shops, bars and restaurants, all intermingling with its venerable heritage. Up next, out of Old Town, to scale a hill with stunning views across the sea, and home to Hastings' delightful, ancient castle.

Have fun and stay curious...
