Hope you all had a great weekend, I managed to take the wife away and spend a relaxing weekend in Hastings, we stayed in a stunning 5 star B&B called The Cloudesley in St Leonards-on-Sea, just a short walk from the old town in Hastings.
Hastings is a town and borough in the county of East Sussex on the south coast of England. The town is located 53 miles south east of London, and has an estimated population of 86,900.
In historical terms, Hastings can claim fame through its connection with the Norman conquest of England; and also because it became one of the medieval Cinque Ports. Hastings was, for centuries, an important fishing port; although nowadays much reduced, it still has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in England. The town became a watering place in the 1760s, and then, with the coming of the railway, a seaside resort.
