New programme of scheduled walks for 2017!
The OHPS runs two walks guided by experienced volunteers.
The Old Town Walk which provides a fascinating tour of Hastings Old Town, with its wealth of medieval, Tudor and later historic buildings, twittens and cat creeps.
The Stade Walk (Please note Stade Walks will now meet outside the Fishermen's Museum (inside if raining)) explores the Stade Fishing Quarter at Rock a Nore and the history of our special sustainable fishing community, with its unique tall black Net Shops and a fishing history going back hundreds of years. The Stade is often called a 'living museum'.
Old Town Guided Walks 2017
Meet at 2.30 pm (except where noted), at the TOP of the West Hill lift. (lower lift entrance is at the West end of George Street)
All Old Hastings Preservation Society [OHPS] walks are free, no pre-booking or tickets required but donations are welcomed.
Join us for a tour of Hastings Old Town, the premier ancient Cinque Port, with its wealth of historic buildings, twittens and cat-creeps. Find out why the celebrities of their day flocked to Hastings.

Join us for this fascinating tour of the Stade Fishing Quarter of Hastings Old Town. The walk can be over uneven ground but there are no hills or steps to climb. We can tailor the walk to your mobility needs or interest. The walks are led by experienced volunteer guides from the Fishermen's Museum. These walks take about 90 minutes and are free but donations are welcomed and are used towards the upkeep of the Fishermen's Museum which is a registered charity.

If a scheduled walk isn't convenient for you, we may be able to arrange a private walk on a Wednesday or Friday.
