About the local area


Caroline lives in Hastings, a town on the south coast of England. Hastings has an ancient history and today it is a seaside resort. It is also a busy fishing port. There are museums, art galleries and a cinema as well as shops, restaurants and tearooms. The old town is very pretty and inhabited by artists. Just outside the town is a country park and beautiful countryside to explore. There are many interesting places to visit in the area, including spectacular Bodiam Castle which dates from the 14th century, and Battle Abbey, which is the site of a very famous battle in English history (1066). The lively city of Brighton is one hour away. Brighton has a large number of interesting shops, museums and art galleries as well as a range of restaurants, bars and pubs. The most famous place to visit is the Pavilion, which was a holiday home built in the 18th century by King George IV. The architecture has to be seen to be believed. A day trip to London by train is very easy (1hour 45 minutes). I can arrange tennis, golf, fishing, horse riding, cycling and the price is available on request.
