This is a live view of Hastings Pier, Hastings Old Town, Hastings Beach, and the English Channel. The daytime video tour takes around 8 minutes to complete, and there is a limited view of Hastings Old Town and Pier when it gets dark. Hastings Old Town is an area in Hastings, England, roughly corresponding to the extent of the town before the nineteenth century. It lies mainly within the easternmost valley of the current town. The shingle beach known as The Stade (the old Saxon term meaning «landing place») is home to Britain's biggest beach-launched fishing fleet. Every year, many events take place in the old town, such as the Hastings Old Town Week, Jack In The Green, the Seafood and Wine Festival, and the Bonfire Procession. Many of these events are centered on Winkle Island, which is, at the same time, the gathering place of the renowned Winkle Club.
