For a heathland hike, head for Hastings Country Park,which can be reached by the East Hill Lift, the steepest funicular railway in Britain. To glimpse Hastings past visit Yesterday's World; this attraction is home to more than 10,000 genuine historical artefacts and you can wander through Victorian streets or revisit the psychedelic seventies. 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. You might even be lucky enough to be in Hastings during the annual re-enactment of its famous Battle, where there'll also be authentic period crafts and living history encampments.
