This Is Hastings Directory is a comprehensive database of businesses, individuals, events and attractions for the Hastings & St Leonards area.

When a business is mentioned in an article on This Is Hastings, a free Basic Listing within the directory is created – giving readers its location / contact details / basic information.

If the business then wishes to upgrade their listing (add photos, links to websites, information, tags, categories etc.) they can do so for a small fee.

This allows businesses to have a fully optimized web presence for a fraction of the cost of a full website – and being part of directory allows them to be found much faster than relying on people knowing their name / URL.

This Is Hastings also offers professional design, photographic and video services. For more details, please contact us.
