For those attempting to travel to Hastings on public transport on Saturday 8th, we've tried to list the best and fastest options we could find at the time of writing. We'll add more departure points as and when we can. This should only be used as a guide - please check locally before attempting to travel.

Hastings is well served by Southern and Southeastern trains. Trains regularly depart from London Charing Cross, Waterloo East, London Bridge, London Victoria and Gatwick Airport, with a travel time of around one and a half hours from Charing Cross to Hastings. Trains also depart from St Pancras International on the UK's first domestic high speed service with one change at Ashford International.
We would encourage visitors to use public transport if at all possible, but for those who need to travel by road, if you're traveling from London and the North, take the A21 from the M25 all the way to Hastings. Alternatively, you can take the M20 from London towards Ashford, then take the A2070 and A259. From Brighton and the West simply take the A27 and A259, which bring you directly into Hastings.
