  • They've done a great job with what they have here. Exhibit was fun and interactive, and made learning entertaining. A good mix of spoke word, text and engagement. Such a relief after the disappointment of the castle.
  • Me and my bestfriend loved this place so much! Nice little day trip whilst we was on holiday in Hastings x
  • I went as a child and I remember loving this place. Plan on bringing my son 7 years old here soon. Can't wait :) x
  • Not too many pics wouldn't want to ruin it. We paid for the castle and the caves didn't bother with sealife as been to too many elsewhere ! Lovely day in hastings. Would urge all families to take the east and west cliff lifts to add to the adventure !
  • If you want to see a big cave you won't be disappointed lol. It's something different to do, interesting history
