History

The 1066 story right on your doorstep.

Known as the birthplace of England, Hastings has a long and colourful history which stretches back over a thousand years. The battle that took place in 1066 between William the Conqueror of Normandy and King Harold’s English army changed the culture and English language forever. Losing the Battle of Hastings in 1066 resulted in almost 200 years of Norman rule.

The town is also the birthplace of television (invented by John Logie Baird in 1923). As well as being famed for culture and innovation, Hastings is also known for having the largest beach-launched fishing fleet and Britain's steepest funicular railway. Its history stands visible on the West Hill with the ruins of William the Conqueror’s first English castle, making the town famous worldwide.
