Alexandra Park


A 10 minute walk from Hastings town centre, this Grade II Listed Victorian park is one of the finest to be found anywhere in the country. It has all the attractions for a great day out, from open spaces to run about, a wonderful café, play areas and great walks, ponds and streams, and a unique collection of rare and unusual trees.

This 109 acre park was originally laid out by Robert Marnock, a renowned landscape gardener, in 1878. It was formally opened by the Prince and Princess of Wales on June 26 1882.

The park stretches for 2.5 miles through the heart of Hastings and received its first Green Flag Award in 2005, retaining this status ever since. Alexandra Park is renowned for its tree collection which is one of the best in the UK.
