If you’ve heard that Hastings lies in a part of East Sussex known as 1066 Country, then you’ll have a very big clue as to the towns past. It will be forever linked to the famous Battle of Hastings, and with William of Normandy, who built Hastings Castle, the remains of which now overlook the town.  There are a real mixture of historical attractions here, which also include St Clements Caves Smuggling Adventure, a Shipwreck Heritage Centre, ancient woodland in Hastings Country Park, and a Fishermen’s Museum.

Don’t forget the beaches, traditional shopping areas, sports facilities, and several vineyards too. Arrive in Hastings at the right time, and you might walk right into one of their festivals too. These include the Seafood and Wine Festival, Jack In The Green Morris Dancing Festival, and a medieval celebration called Herstmonceux. Visit Hastings, and you’ll be visiting a town full of charm and diversity.
