Fodor's Expert Review The Jerwood Gallery
A symbol of Hastings's slow but growing regeneration after decades of neglect, this new exhibition space in the Old Town became one of the most talked-about new galleries outside London when it opened in the early 2010s. The collection includes works by Walter Sickert, Stephen Lowry, and Augustus John. Temporary exhibitions change every couple of months.

On the first Tuesday of every month the gallery stays open until 8 pm, with entry free beginning at 4.
