Hastings Seafront from Castle Rocks

Hastings Seafront from Castle Rocks Photography Panorama Old Town Landscape Hastings Harbour Arm East Sussex Beach This view of Hastings seafront was taken from the sandstone rocks that rise above the town. These rocks form part of the promontory upon which Hastings Castle is built.

The sand stone rocks have long been popular with children and young people. The soft stone invites people to carve their names on it. As a result every reachable part of them are covered with engravings. My initials are on there somewhere.

This part of Hastings seafront is really the centre of activity for tourists. There is plenty for visitors to do.

The three crazy golf courses on Hastings seafront host the World Crazy Golf Championships every October. Last year fifty two competitors took part in the event. Forty eight of those competitors were British, and a British man won, proving once again that this country does produce winners.

Crazy golf is not the only activity available however. Over the past two years the council has installed a multi use games area, beach volleyball court, adventure playground and a seafront trim trail.

For those feeling less active there is the Hastings Fisherman’s Museum or Shipwreck Heritage Museum to enjoy.

Hello. I stumbled upon some of your photographs of Hastings and would like permission to use one of them for my monthly music newsletter, which features a different inspirational place each month. I live in the States (upstate New York) but have a family house in Winchelsea, which I shall be visiting in a fortnight. Please could you email your response to me at Margaret@gamusic.com. Thank you so very much!
