West Hill Lift

The United Kingdom's steepest funicular railway is not only a structure of national importance but also a source of immense local pride.

The lift's charming lower station is in traffic-free George Street which is full of continental-style cafés, artshops and bookshops.

The West Hill itself offers some of the town's most remarkable views, stretching round to Beachy Head in the west and out across the Channel, the busiest sea lane on the world. It was on this hilltop that Hastings resident John Logie Baird, the inventor of television, made his first radar experiments.

Better still, you can enjoy these sights from inside the West Hill Café which is open throughout the Summer and offers a wide range of drinks and meals.


East Hill Lift

The East Hill Lift provides access to Hastings Country Park which overlooks the Old Town and Rock-a-Nore.  The lift provides views over the Stade, home to the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe.
