Hastings is most famous for its connection with the Norman conquest of England in 1066. It's now home to Europe's largest fleet of beach-launched fishing boats. This area is famously called the 'Stade' an old Saxon term meaning "landing place", and dates from before the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It has been used for beaching boats for over a thousand years, a use which continues to this day.
If you love Fishing then you must visit the Hastings Fishermen's Museum and the Shipwreck Heritage Centre. The Fishermen's Museum, housed in the former fishermen's church, is dedicated to the fishing industry and maritime history of Hastings.
On the seafront itself and within a 3 minute walk is the recently opened Jerwood Gallery. It's a permanent home for the Jerwood Collection of 20th and 21st century British art and has a fabulous temporary exhibition programme.
At the top of the steepest funicular railway in Britain is the Castle built by William the Conqueror which now lies in ruins at the top of West Hill. The equally nearby East Hill is also served by a funicular railway. There are lovely views of the area and Channel and the (East Hill) funicular is visible from the windows of Seabreeze.
'Jack In the Green' is a wonderful celebration in early May when the whole town dresses up, Morris dancers strut their stuff and there's always an extensive program of music and folk dancing. Mardi Gras is also celebrated in style in Hastings when a festival in February known as 'Fat Tuesday' includes live music, bands and five days of revelry. Hastings hosts many more festivals throughout the year including Carnival Week, the seafood festival, the Bonfire festival, Pirate Day and the Zombie Walk to mention a few.
The historic Cinque Port town of Rye in the East Sussex countryside is perched on a hill and is only 12 miles away, overlooking the River Rother and Romney Marsh, this ancient town is the sort of place you thought existed only in your imagination. With enchanting cobbled streets, medieval church and beautifully preserved historic houses from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times, Rye is almost suspended in time and has a uniquely unhurried atmosphere.
The attractive town of Battle, 8 miles, gets its name from the Battle of Hastings, which was fought between Harold the Saxon king and William the Conqueror in 1066. The battle was so significant it changed the course of English history. The town grew up around the Abbey of St Martin which was built by William the Conqueror after the battle. It is said that William vowed that should he win the battle he would build such an abbey. The abbey was built between 1070 and 1094, and the high altar is believed to have been placed on the spot where Harold fell. Today the Abbey ruins and the battlefield are cared for by English Heritage and are well worth a visit. The imposing Abbey gatehouse built circa 1338 can be seen as you look down the length of the High Street.
