The work continues; by the time the structural work is finished there’ll be around 72,000 metres of new timber, 11 new structural piles and 500 deck beams and 350 lattice girders will have been replaced.

You can watch the changes happening live via the Pier webcam.

Visitor Centre Opportunity

We are currently running a tender process for an operator to work with us on the catering offer in the Visitor Centre. This will be a terrific new location on the Pier, and we think it’s an amazing opportunity for the right enterprise. We are conscious that we do not want anyone who might be interested to miss out on this, so we are putting a copy of the invitation to apply here on our home page:



Hastings Pier Charity, a Community Benefit Society, is undertaking the project to rebuild and reopen Hastings Pier. With a planned opening in Spring 2016, HPC is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified operators to tender for the opportunity to provide the food and beverage operation in the Visitor Centre on the pier.

The Visitor Centre will be one of the focal points of the new Hastings Pier with a food and Beverage opportunity on the ground floor and on the roof terrace providing an unique environment for guests to enjoy. The Visitor Centre also provides significant additional opportunities outside of normal trading times for events and functions.

We are looking for a partner who can provide a varied café/ bistro offering and can work closely with Sussex Coast College to provide developmental and employment opportunities for local apprentices and trainees.

Further information will be supplied to the selected list of operators for tender.
Expressions of interest, together with a relevant credentials pitch should be sent to
