Hastings Pier is owned and operated by Hastings Pier Charity - a Community Benefit Society with Exempt Charity status (registered number 32211 R).

We rely on donations to keep Hastings Pier maintained and open for all with free entry. 

Hastings Pier received generous funding from a variety of organisations (with the Heritage Lottery Fund contributing the lion's share), as well as through a successful Community Share scheme, during the pier's construction phase.

This funding was spent on the pier's reconstruction (details of how the money was spend can be found here), and we now have the challenging task of making the pier self-sufficient and secure its future for the benefit of the people of Hastings and St Leonards and the wider community.

It costs £800,000 per year to maintain and operate Hastings Pier, and we receive no Government funding. All donations to Hastings Pier Charity are gratefully received and are vital in enabling us to keep the Pier open for all to enjoy now and in the future.

Thank you for your support.
