Now, this is a pretty little building. It is the base stop of the Hastings Funicular Railway and is tucked at the bottom of East Hill Cliff below Hastings Country Park.
I have been going to Hastings since I can remember. We used to go and play the slot machines on the pier and wander through the lanes to the Old Town and have fish and chips. Around the turn of the century, the pier, like many in the country, was shut due to storm damage and a need of refurbishment. On 5th October 2010 the pier was destroyed by a fire. A restoration project has been based on the original iron supports.
Like Looe in Cornwall, Hastings is renowned for its fresh fish. The largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe operates from here and so the fish is as good as it can be. Maggie's café is perched above the cold fish store next to the eastern terminal of the Hastings Miniature Railway. Best get there as it opens because it is very popular and rapidly fills up with fishermen, locals and creative people.
It easily gets into the top ten fish and chip venues and the cod is large and sea fresh. Get a seat by the window and watch the boats being launched to catch tomorrow's lunch.
