Research Document - Historical Overview of Hastings by Decade

Following a £14.2m refurbishment and over two years work, Hastings Pier has re-opened to the public on 27th April 2016.

Hastings was already a popular seaside resort in the late 18th century, and King George III’s physician, Dr Baillie, recommended it to his patients. The Pigot & Co Directory for 1840 commented that Hastings had “the most excellent accommodations for sea bathing and that the recreations were in every respect worthy of this fashionable town”.
