To soak up Hasting’s immense history maybe wander the preserved Old Town which lies in a valley between the East and West Hills, each with their own funicular railway (not included). Take the East Hill up to Hastings Country Park or the West Hill Lift to the ruins of Hastings Castle.

Today you are free to explore as much (or as little) of Eastbourne as you like. Located on the seafront overlooking the famous flower decked promenade bandstand and beautiful Victorian pier, our hotel is situated perfectly to help you get the most out of your free day. The Eastbourne Lifeboat Museum and the Winter Gardens are a leisurely walk away or perhaps you’d prefer Eastbourne’s Miniature Steam Railway.
