Fodor's Review

Take a thrilling ride up the West Hill Cliff Railway from George Street precinct to the atmospheric ruins of the Norman fortress now known as Hastings Castle, built by William the Conqueror in 1069. All that remains are fragments of the fortifications, some ancient walls, and a number of gloomy dungeons. Nevertheless, you get an excellent view of the chalky cliffs, the rocky coast, and the town below.
