Travel back in time to discover the fascinating history of Hastings and enjoy a day of exploration with the whole family. Roam the beautiful castle grounds and learn all about smuggler adventures. Here’s how to make your way to a fascinating day packed full with captivating attractions.
If you’re driving to Hastings from the Channel Ports, Channel Tunnel, or from Brighton, take the A259 coastal road and follow the beautiful scenic route straight into the heart of Hastings.
To reach us from the M25, take the A21 at junction 5 to travel directly into Hastings. We are located on the West Hill waiting to discover lost history with you.
There is limited pay and display parking available on the hill, which is why we advise customers to park in a more easily accessible car park along the seafront. From there, take the West Hill Cliff Railway, which is located on George Street. If it’s a lovely day then you can walk via signposted pathways on George Street and High Street to all of the attractions.
You can access the seafront car park by entering the postcode TN34 3AJ in the sat nav.
