DAY TRIP TO HASTINGS

18 September 2018

Love Walk recently made the most of the lovely weather and enjoyed a summer’s day trip to Hastings.

Residents had a picnic by the beach, a wander along the promenade where they tried some delicious ice cream, followed by visits to the Fisherman’s museum and the Shipwreck museum. Both are fascinating tiny museums with an interesting mix of historical exhibits, including an ancient fishing vessel you can climb around, and the contents of a shipwreck brought up from the deep.

The group then took a ride on the funicular railway to the country park on the cliffs overlooking Hastings with views over Beachy Head and ended the day with a seafood supper of octopus, calamari, mussels, scampi and prawns on the front. It was a great day out with fantastic food and perfect weather!
