Hastings is and continues to be an attractive visitor destination for people in the South East, particularly day trippers and for national and international tourists. Many of the FLAG projects offer new experiences for these visitors and aims to encourage return visits and to help them become more aware of the importance of the town’s sustainable fishing industry, the local environment, and to learn how to identify, buy and cook more fish.

Projects that particularly offer something new few destination visitors are:
