About

Following an extensive reconstruction project, Hastings Pier reopened to the public in April 2016. The pier is a modern, 21st century attraction with its history and heritage at its heart.

Open 7 days a week all year round (opening times vary depending on the season and event). Free entry (apart from ticketed events).

Promenade 272 metres out to sea; relax with a cup of coffee and an outstanding ocean view at the Upper Deck viewing platform cafe; and enjoy a portion of fish and chips or a meal at the restaurant (freshly made using locally-sourced ingredients). Pop into The Deck visitor centre and explore Hastings Pier Charity's Digital Archive in our interactive exhibition spaces. You can also explore our external interpretation, including a trail, periscopes, binoculars and waltz steps (all free to use!). There is a range of shopping options too - browse a range of quality gifts from our Hastings Pier Shop (in The Deck building) and the independent retail kiosks, and stop by the independent food and beverage kiosks for a sweet or savoury treat!

Hastings Pier hosts a wide range of events all year around - from summer circuses and live music concerts, to open-air cinema screenings and free family workshops. Please see our website for more details on what’s coming up.

Hastings Pier is also available for hire! Whether you’re looking for the ideal venue for your business meetings, somewhere unique for your next conference, or a place that will make that special day unforgettable, Hastings Pier is the perfect location for your event.

      Hastings Pier is a wonderful design . Gone are the shelters , buildings and kiosks that usually hinder the view of the sea. You are exposed to the elements and you should visit in all weathers to... Read full review

      Liked this pier when it reopened, liked the fact it was a big open space with clean lines etc. The new owner has ruined this by adding tacky gold animals, I suppose ruin is a harsh word but not sure... Read full review
