Free Guided Walks

We are sorry to say that due to Covid-19 restrictions we’ve had to change things a bit.

We’re running an Old Town Walk  as part of the Old Town Carnival Week, Tuesday 4th August but because of restrictions this is limited to 5 people so pre booking is essential and tickets will be £5 and only available on our website here: https://www.ohps.org.uk/products-page/product-ohps/tickets-for-old-town-walk-tuesday-4th-august/

We’re also running a Stade Walk as part of the Old Town Carnival Week Thursday 6th August again limited to 5 people and tickets are £3 and only available here:  https://www.ohps.org.uk/products-page/product-ohps/tickets-for-stade-walk-thursday-6th-august/

As the museum is only open weekends in July and we’re unsure what August holds, you can contact us on 07895565195 by text or call.  Also the usual Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or StadeWalks@gmail.com. It won’t be manned all of the time but someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

New schedule for 2020!!

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 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’.

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 60 to 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 Thursday or Friday.
