Love this museum. It’s our second visit. I love the photos of local people and especially the opportunity to climb up and stand on the 1910 ( I think) Enterprise boat.

A tiny converted church that is full of shipping memorabilia. Loads of pictures and artefacts and a boat !! Popped in on a windy morning and enjoyed an hour or so looking around. Free to enter but donations gratefully accepted.

Several visits, all enjoyable. The museum is small and personal and weaves social history, fishing, industrial history and the present day into a really inclusive experience. Entry is free and parking (not free) is near at hand. Buying fresh fish or eating options are also...More

Good for a quick way to learn how the fishermen used to earn a living Still a hard job nowadays but harder in the old days without the modern clothing and the new technology they have in today’s age.

Close by the Shipwreck Museum, close to the east end of Hastings shoreline. Lots to look at, a ship to clamber over & close to other attractions. Good for all ages to while away an hour or two

Quite a small place but plenty of stuff crammed in to its two rooms. Free entry perfect for a quick half hour visit

hi. it will tight but you can get round only downside is I don't think you will be able to get up onto the boat that's inside the building.
