Hastings has been voted one of the UK’s top tourist spots for 2016.

A survey of 10,000 holiday-goers has revealed the 50 towns and cities Brits are swarming to this summer, with Hastings coming sixth in the list.

Brighton came 15th and the Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, came top at number one.

The survey, carried out by Pegasus Marine Finance, follows a report by The Telegraph, which found that more Brits are enjoying holidays in the UK.

According to data from Visit England, the number of overseas holidays booked by Brits is 16 per cent lower than it was prior to the recession while holidays in the UK increased by 12 per cent between 2008 and 2013.

Jonathan Le Roux, co-founder and director of Pegasus Marine Finance, said: “Britain is beautiful and in my opinion is hard to beat when the rain’s not falling.

“Whether you’re visiting towns and villages of historical value or enjoying our varied coastline, the UK offers amazing diversity.”
