Southern England
Local Group
Start Time
Start and finish Hastings Castle (West Hill café near entrance). Trains 08.06 or 08.36 from Charing X OR VICTORIA: ***NEW NOTE: it is better (and cheaper) to book rail in advance. There are two ways of getting to Hastings: either via Charing Cross (trains leaving 08.15 or 08.45) OR London Victoria (07.47 Victoria 07.53 Clapham 08.02 East Croydon). Although going via Victoria takes a bit longer IT IS VERY MUCH THE CHEAPEST OPTION. Note also that it may be cheaper to buy two single journeys rather than a return. All the information is on the national rail website. Takes in the delights of Fairlight, Pett Level, Icklesham and the fantastic views from Fairlight country park
General Notes
Lunch in the lovely Queens Head at Icklesham with great food and wonderful views over the valley from the garden. It's a long way to come for a walk but you won't be disappointed and you can have seaside fish and chips on your train journey home!
