Hastings Pier, St Leonards-on-Sea

#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Hastings
Pier / Boardwalk · Educational Site
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.

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.

  • 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 »
