Hastings Pier is a public pleasure pier in Hastings, East Sussex, England. Built in 1872 and enjoying its prime in the 1930s, it became a popular music venue in the 1960s. The structure suffered major storm damage in 1990, and was closed to the public for a time before closing completely in 2008, and 95% destroyed by a fire in 2010. Hastings Pier Charity oversaw a rebuilding project, with the pier reopening on 27 April 2016. The redeveloped pier won the 2017 Stirling Prize for architecture.Use our St Leonards-on-Sea trip planner to arrange your visit to Hastings Pier and other attractions in St Leonards-on-Sea.
The charity went into administration in 2017 and the pier was sold to a private buyer in 2018. The pier re-opened on 1 April 2019.
Hastings Pier reviews
Not even quarter full - and a 30 minute wait with no warning when you order. The manager should be sacked. No staff behind the bar. more »
Whoever thought to put a pub garden on here is inspired! What a great idea - sitting at the tables, ordering via the app. 80s night with a DJ. I had a ball here. Loved it. more »
No end of pier walk as they closed it off for the few.
Lovely shops and there was even a band playing on a Sunday evening when we went there!
