The arrival of the railways during the 19th century brought popularity to Hastings as a seaside holiday destination, which also drove up the population numbers. The modern town has modern amenities such as the Priory Meadow shopping centre that complement the pleasant ambience of the Old Town area.
There are also some excellent schools that will please parents of young children; options at primary level include Sacred Heart Catholic Primary, Main Road’s Westfield School and Blacklands Primary. The Hastings Academy on Rye Road and William Parker Sports College on Parkstone Road are among the choices at secondary level.
