    How is it fair to charge families £8 if they are local or £20 if they are not. Simply trying to rinse as many holiday makers as they can. Surely it's discrimination? Avoid if you don't want to be ripp...  more »

  • Small but if you're in Hastings worth a visit but probably not worth going there especially.
  • This is a small but nice modern, art gallery. Not too expensive but not cheap for the scale of what is on display. However there were some really interesting pieces around Picasso and a great collection of self portraits. The visiting exhibition we saw wasn't that good but this rotates quite frequently so worth looking at the program to see if there is something interesting that you want to see. The cafe is nice with a balcony overlooking all the old fresh fish stalls and fishing boats.
  • Lovely day out and excellent works of art and a restaurant with outside balcony .
  • Brilliant collection, great changing exhibitions, wonderful building, exciting location, smashing cafe!
  • Lovely space with bright, open views of the sea. Not the biggest, so maybe a little pricey at just shy of a tenner.
