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.

Designed originally by renowned Victorian engineer Eugenius Birch and first opened in 1872, Hastings Pier has stood through wars, played host to music legends such as Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, been closed down, caught fire more than once and was raised from the ashes by the local community and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The new, modern, RIBA-award-winning pier is a simple and sustainable platform that is loved by locals as well as being a popular visitor destination. As well as the Pavilion Restaurant and beach hut-style food and drinks kiosks, vintage fairs, exhibitions and family-friendly events to keep you entertained – the Pier itself is an attraction that is not to be missed.  Uninterrupted expanses of elegant Ekki wood allow you to get out in the elements and enjoy being closer to nature.
