Situated next to the beach-fishing fleet in Hastings Old Town, the award winning Jerwood Gallery is home to the Jerwood Collection of Modern and Contemporary British art.

The Jerwood Collection’s main focus is from the First World War to the 1960s. Highlights include works by some of the great British artists of the previous century, including Sir Stanley Spencer, LS Lowry, Walter Sickert and Augustus John. The collection, which continues to grow, also features contemporary works by artists including Rose Wylie, Maggie Hambling and Jeffery Camp. 

The gallery also offers a diverse temporary exhibition programme and has included some major exhibitions by Jake and Dinos Chapman, Rose Wylie, Ansel Krut and Gillian Ayres RA.

The gallery café, Webbe's at Jerwood, overlooks the fishing beach, has an outside sun terrace and offers panoramic views of the coastline. It’s a fantastic location for a coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.
