An ancient town and a late edition as one of the premier Cinque ports. Like many south east coastal towns it was the subject of raiding parties during the 100 years war with the French. It has a wide promenade and (shingle) beach. It has the usual amenities of an English resort in addition to many historical ones. It is an immaculate ancient town as well as a large bustling modern one. On the high cliffs is Hastings castle and below it smugglers caves.
