TRIP ADVISOR CAN GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE BEST PLACES TO EAT AND DRINK, BUT NOBODY REALLY KNOWS HASTINGS LIKE WE DO. HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITES: The Crown is a very popular pub and highly recommended for its range of craft beers. The Dragon Bar is a swanky London cocktail bar, where its resident DJ plays tracks straight from vinyl on his mini decks. Porter’s Wine Bar is situated in a Grade 2 listed building and regularly has performances from award-winning jazz singer, Liane Carroll. The Boulevard Bookshop is a bookshop by day and Thai restaurant by night, offering a fine range of home-cooked Thai dishes. Café Maroc is a BYOB Moroccan restaurant serving traditional Moroccan feasts. There are loads more, so make sure you check out the full list on our website at www.sussexcoast.ac.uk/highereducation.

In the rest of the town you’ll find some of the best fish and chips shops including: THE COD FATHER, THE OLD TOWN FRYER AND THE KINGFISHER. There is a row of arcades and amusements, a GO-KART TRACK and the UK’S LARGEST ADVENTURE GOLF COMPLEX. To the east, you’ll find a glorious stretch of beach, with EUROPE’S LARGEST BEACH-LAUNCHED FISHING FLEET, the iconic black FISHING HUTS, with views of the EAST HILL in the background. THE JERWOOD GALLERY has very much made itself at home in this part of town since opening in 2011 and offers a ‘uniquely British experience’. Heading west, you’ll find the famous HASTINGS PIER. After being burnt down in 2010, the pier re-opened 6 years later. It acknowledges the history and charm of the old one by using some of the old planks in the restoration. It now offers a clean, modern, spacious area for people to explore. Since re-opening, the pier has been a hive of activity with OPEN-AIR YOGA, CINEMA SCREENINGS, A CIRCUS and LIVE MUSIC.

The pier was once a popular venue for live music. THE ROLLING STONES, THE SEX PISTOLS, THE WHO and JIMI HENDRIX all played here in their heyday. It looks as if the pier will once again become a hot spot for live performances after DIZZY RASCAL, MADNESS, the LEVELLERS, and DJ sensations MK and HANNAH WANTS all played sold out sets over the summer. Throughout the year, it’s hard not to get carried away with all the parties and festivals going on in the town. THE SEAFOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL, JACK IN THE GREEN, PIRATES DAY, and its very own version of MARDI GRAS - FAT TUESDAY are some of the best.
