The South East England region
South East England combines the highest average daytime temperatures found in the British Isles with the highest sunshine averages on the British mainland.
The coast has consistently more sunshine than the inland areas: sea breezes, blowing off the sea, tend to clear any cloud from the coast.
Hastings is home to the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe, the remains of the first castle in England to be built by William the Conqueror, and a strong local arts community. Hastings Old Town is vibrant and bustling, offering museums, nature parks, boutique shopping and art galleries including the new Jerwood Gallery located in the middle of the fishing quarter opposite Aylesbury Cottage.
In addition within minutes is an aquarium, model railway and fantastic places to eat and drink and ofcourse the beach. Hastings has a great tradition of festivals many of which are held within the Old town:
