1-10 White Rock Hastings East Sussex TN 34 1JU
Hastings Pier was originally designed by renowned Victorian engineer Eugenius Birch and opened on a wet and windy August Bank Holiday Monday in 1872 by the Earl of Granville, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. The opening was a very grand affair, complete with a celebratory banquet. During the Earl’s after-dinner speech he declared:
“This pier, if I may so use the phrase, appears to me to be a peerless pier – pier without a peer – except, perhaps, the unfortunate peer who is now addressing you”.
The Pier continued to inspire, entertain and thrill generations of visitors alike, many travelling from miles around to promenade among the waves and enjoy tremendous ocean views.
