Vote Hastings for Rambers' Prize - Visit 1066 Country

Vote Hastings for Rambers' Prize

1st March 2018

Categories: Latest News

Hastings Old Town is in the running (walking?!) to win the very first Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood Award, launched by the Ramblers on Monday (26 February).  It is one of ten areas to make it to the final public vote in the new award, which celebrates the places that put urban walkers first.

Anthony Slack, long-time Hastings Old Town resident, nominated his neighbourhood for the award. He said: “Whether it’s simply to visit local shops and restaurants, to go to the doctors’ surgery or to the local cinema or theatre, or just to admire our historic buildings, walking is usually the best way to do it in Hastings Old Town.   The well-maintained green spaces, the sea views and pleasant places to stop and socialise, all combine to make Hastings Old Town a fantastic walkable community.

The streets of the Old Town were made for walking, developed long before the invention of the car.  The quaint streets are crisscrossed by narrow "twittens" that today form charming pedestrian routes between the streets. 

There are other great walks in and around Hastings too, including the award winning Alexandra Park, the three mile long seafront, the green spaces of Hastings Country Park with its stunning clifftop views, the West Hill and East Hill.
