Hanging Around Hastings

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 3rd July 2014

My first pier in East Sussex was at Hastings. It’s currently in a rather sorry state, having burned down in 2010, but is in the process of being repaired. It’s hoped it will be open to the public again by Summer 2015.

Obviously, there wasn’t anywhere to have cake on the pier itself, but I found a hotel just opposite where I had a tasty hot chocolate sponge on their terrace overlooking the works.

A Grand Time At Weston

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 12th June 2014

The second pier of my Somerset visit was Weston-super-Mare Grand. And it would seem it’s grand by name and Grand by nature these days. Refurbished and re-opened in 2010 after a devastating fire in 2008, it now boasts many indoor amusements, and modern facilities.

The Pierhead also boasts a fine restaurant which serves an excellent Cream Tea!
