Hastings is a popular tourist destination in East Sussex, synonymous with the Norman Landing (which too place at Normans Bay) and the Battle of Hastings (which was on Senlack Hill in Battle 8 miles away). East Hill forms the eastern boundary of Hastings Old Town. The cliffs of East Hill then continue east towards Balck Rock and Covehurst Bay, lined by a shingle beach for part of the way. On the top of East Hill cliffs runs part of the Saxon Way. Much of the coastline is accessible in low tide, but beach combers must take care of incoming tides beyond the breakwater from which this virtual tour was taken.
There is a pay-and-display car park to the rear of the beach here, and along Rock-a-Nore Road are several popular tourist attractions in Hastings, including the Hastings Fishermen's Museum, the Net Shops, Rock A Nore Fisheries and an aquarium. At the end of the street are the funicular to the top of East Hill, Stade Family Park amusements and Flamingo Park rides. On the beach nearby you can usually find some of the Hastings Fishing Boats, specially designed with skids attached to the keels to allow for beach mooring.
