Fodor's Expert Review Hastings Contemporary

Hastings Museum/Gallery

A symbol of Hastings's slow but growing regeneration after decades of neglect, this spruced-up exhibition space in the Old Town has become one of the most talked-about contemporary art galleries outside London. Formerly known as the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings Contemporary's collection includes works by Walter Sickert, Stephen Lowry, and Augustus John, while temporary exhibitions change every couple of months. The glazed-tile building on the seafront was designed to reflect the row of distinctive old, blackened fishing sheds it sits alongside.
