We are sorry to say that due to Covid-19 we will be postponing our walks’ schedule this year until safe to walk. Meanwhile stay safely indoors and we’ll see you on the other side.
As the museum is also closed if you would like to make contact with 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’.

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.
Maximum 15 people – any groups must book in advance.
If a scheduled walk isn’t convenient for you, we may be able to arrange a private walk on a Thursday or Friday.
