If history is your thing, you can visit the castle, the museum and even go on an Old Town Ghost Walk.

Just outside Hastings, you'll find historic Winchelsea where you can book on a 'cellar tour'! There are 56 medieval cellars in Winchelsea, built in the 13th Century and used mainly to service the wine trade with Gascony.
