Win a trip to historic Hastings

    The East Hill Cliff Railway

    Enter our competition for a chance to win a two-night seaside break in a historic Cinque Port town.

    Discover Britain has partnered with Visit 1066 Country to offer one lucky reader the chance to enjoy a jam-packed two-night stay for two on the south coast, allowing you to fully explore and enjoy the seaside town of Hastings.

    Be welcomed by The Old Rectory, a boutique townhouse hotel with its own walled garden. Each room is named after streets within Hastings Old Town – you’ll be in the Sinnock or Crown room. During your stay you can enjoy breakfast a la carte and a spa treatment each.

    During your stay you can also dine at the award-winning Maggie’s Fish & Chips, which is nestled among old fishermen’s net shops, as well as indulging in a three-course meal at Webbe’s at Rock-a-Nore, a restaurant that is literally a stone’s throw from the Hastings fleet on the beach that catch their fish.

    Your entertainment will be provided in the form of tickets to the 17th-century house of Bateman’s, the National Trust-run former home of The Jungle Book author and poet Rudyard Kipling and his family until 1936 in the stunning nearby landscape of the Sussex Weald. You’ll also get the opportunity to take a trip on the UK’s steepest funicular, the East Hill Cliff Railway, to Hastings Country Park, with incredible views over the Old Town.


    All readers can also save 10 per cent at The Old Rectory thanks to our partnership. Single occupancy starts at £90 and doubles from £110 per room, just quote “Discover Britain offer”.
