Top 15 Hastings Airbnbs - Updated 2021

airbnb Hastings, Great Britain

Hastings is perhaps best known for serving as the site of the infamous Battle of Hastings in 1066, although history shows that the actual battleground of the Norman Conquests was a few miles away. It is also known for the Shipwreck Museum, which tells the tales of those whose lives were lost at sea. Another quirky museum worth visiting in the area is the True Crime Museum, the home of the largest collection of crime memorabilia in the UK.

Smugglers Adventure is also a place worth checking out, for those who want to know more about the town’s history of smugglers. These are only some of the sites and attractions awaiting visitors to Hastings. If you’re thinking of visiting this town, do check out this list of the top Hastings Airbnbs.
