Completely rebuilt in 2004, Hastings station sits less than half a mile from the front in this historic seaside town. It was thanks to the coming of the railway and the construction of the original station in 1851 that Hastings reached its peak as a fashionable resort in the Victorian era, although it had long been known for the reputed health-giving properties of its seawater. Now, within a few minutes' walk of the station visitors can reach the beach and amusements along the seafront or explore the Old Town with its narrow streets and characterful shops and pubs. There are also two funicular cliff railways, West Hill and East Hill, carrying passengers up to enjoy the views. Though the town is so closely connected with the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066, the actual site is a few miles away at Battle Abbey. In the town itself, you can still visit the ruined 11th century castle – the first built by William the Conqueror after the Norman Conquest.
