Solicitors in Hastings


Hastings is a fishing town located on the South Coast in East Sussex. It lies some 24 miles from the county town of Lewes, and 53 miles south of London. Hastings has a population of nearly 87,000. Largely famous for one incident in history, Hastings has retained the fascination of those who visit with a compelling mix of tourism and industry.

Although once a significant fishing town, Hastings is perhaps less well known for its fishing today despite the fact that it can still boast the largest fleet of beach based fishing boats in Europe. In fact boats have been launched from beneath the cliffs at Hastings for at least four hundred years.

As the importance of fishing declined, so the town became better known as a tourist destination. Although this plays an important role in the local economy, the town’s major employers are health and public administration, retail and education. Today, the focus is on reducing the areas reliance on public sector employment, with investment focussing on attracting new businesses into Hastings.
