The 15 best things to do in Hastings

The 15 best things to do in Hastings

It may have been overlooked for some time, but today’s Hastings is a hip seaside resort with bags of old-school charm. A mass exodus from London’s art scene has seen the town become awash with studio spaces and art shops, as painters and sculptors look for inspiration along the coast, where the light is magical all year round. Despite the influx of newcomers, Hastings has long been imbued with an independent spirit. That’s reflected in its thriving vintage shopping scene, as well as the superb Hastings Contemporary gallery and award-winning pier. There is, of course, history everywhere you turn, from the Norman Conquest of 1066 right through to the town’s status as one of the foremost places for smuggling in the eighteenth century. With some of the finest Art Deco architecture in the UK too, Hastings is ripe for a long day out or a weekend break from the city. Read on and we’ll tell you the best things to do in Hastings right now. RECOMMENDED: The best things to do in the UK

The 13 best things to do in Canterbury

The 13 best things to do in Canterbury

Kent isn’t all about the coastal charms of Margate and Ramsgate. Canterbury serves up the ideal day trip from the capital – the high-speed train from St Pancras takes less than an hour to get here – and rewards those who come with superb food, great nightlife and, of course, a long history visible in its incredible architecture. The cathedral is the big draw, the seat of the Anglican church, not to mention one of England’s finest buildings. It was here that Thomas Becket, the city’s archbishop, was infamously murdered in 1170, the start of a cult of personality which lasts until this day. The cathedral was also the destination of the pilgrims in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. The latter is impossible to escape as you walk these storied streets. It’s not all religious and bloody history, though. Whether you want weapons-grade coffee, the very best produce from the area or brunch to soothe a hangover after a night at one of Canterbury’s excellent pubs, you’ll be well catered for.
