The Old Town's narrow streets, lanes and passages and its mix of reconditioned and funkily ecclectic residential and commercial sites including some very nice pubs and restaurants is a must do experience. Add in a working fishing fleet berthed on the hard and seafood sold...More

A must if you visit Hastings. Much nicer than the other parts. Full of individual shops, restaurants and pubs. Partly pedestrianised streets but can get quite busy so if there is a particular restaurant you want to visit I would advise booking to avoid disappointment.

Hastings is very dog friendly, most places have bowls of water outside for your hot dog. The West Hill is full of dogs taking their owners walkies. The beach, between the harbour wall and the pier, is not open to dogs... More

I always go along the beach front first then double back though the cobbled streets.
