The Jerwood Gallery in Hastings is a lovely building, although they clearly haven’t quite worked out what to do about the seagull guano streaks on the glazed black tiles. It works really well with the net stores (sorry, no pictures), and houses a wonderful collection of 20th century British painting and sculpture – a real treat. The Fishermen’s Museum is fun, too.
And because you have to if there is one, we went up the cliff in the funicular – to find hordes of French schoolchildren eating their sandwiches, along with a howling wind. So we didn’t stay very long at the top. A wonderful boutique break (the only one I have ever done, neither of us being obviously boutique-motel material).
