the second Hanushka in town (the other one is smaller and in George Street) this one is great for bigger groups, to work as there are sockets everywhere to charge laptop, and to come with kids as it has a little play corner with lots of toys

Lovely local wine, and sustainable business. Stylish restaurant and bar plus outside seating area with pizza oven. Three course meal for about 50 pounds. Great place though a bit hipster... :)

Sightseeing

right around the corner, the beautiful East Hill with views of the Old Town. Just head right when you step outside, then straight until you get to the hill, aim right to find the steps to go up. You might pass local gastropub The Crown, always a winner with nice atmosphere and great for sundowners on the benches outside

Beautiful old houses. For example: Towards the sea front, at the back of the Lord Nelson pub is 'The Pulpit Gate House' Has previously been On the market at £495,000 and has a host of period features and comprises three floors.The main features comprise a reception room with open hearth fireplace, cosy dining room with hitorical leaded lights and a Jacobean staircase with tall leaded mullion windows. There is also a vaulted ceiling to roof apex, and numerous oak beams, studding and roof timbers. This was the smallest of the three gates in the Town Wall and was a postern gate situated at the bottom of All Saints Street. A number of steps had to be descended to access the gate and, from the resemblance to the two-decker pulpits of the period became known as The Pulpit Gate. This gate was possibly rebuilt around 1380 and referred to subsequently also as the 'New Gate' Any wheeled vehicle or person on horseback needing access to the Stonebeach would have to turn west down East Bourne Street to pass through the Bourne Gate. The name of Pulpit Gate is now preserved by means of being adopted by a house adjacent to the original gate's location, Please share the post guys sharing is caring🙏 Interior pictures from the #observer

Cosy place with benches to sit and enjoy the hustle and bustle of George Street. Often you can find buskers here, and there is the opportunity to play life-size chess! You can find the pieces in the cupboard next to Butler's Emporium, the code is easy.. Just think of Hastings, history, a battle... :) Enjoy!

One of my friends described St Leonards as 'a bohemian war-zone' :) I think he means it's got a great arty vibe and there are lots of cool eateries and coffeeshops, AND... in some areas the paint is peeling and it wouldn't be unusual to witness a 'street argument' ;)

The area around Trinity church and the public library, called 'Trinity Square' and also the 'America Ground'. There's some great coffee and lunch places (Bullet, Stooge Coffee, Hanushka's, Cakeroom), delicious pizza @Rustico's, a cheese shop with local cheeses, a hamburger place that does dj &dancing on Saturdays, a juice bar, and in summers in Gotham Alley (near The Printworx) open air markets with retro and vintage clothes and lovely things from local makers Info online: "In central Hastings is an area covered by Harold Place, the Queens Hotel, Robertson Terrace, Carlisle Parade, White Rock, Robertson Street, Trinity Street, and Claremont, this area to the West of the Priory-Stream was outside the Hastings Borough boundary and was the result of the sea receding. This land was settled by squatters who named it "The America Ground" and declared themselves independent of Hastings."
