Amsterdam Wreck Guided Walk

Visitors are requested to meet at the observation platform, which is to be found on the beach side of the railway at the end of Bridge Way, St Leonards. Advanced booking is recommended although visitors can pay the guides on the night. Tickets are £6 for adults and £2 for children, the price including a copy of the Amsterdam wreck site guidebook. They can be purchased at the Shipwreck Museum, Rock-a-Nore Road, Hastings, TN34 3DW or by telephone, 01424 437452.

For all walks, experienced guides from the Shipwreck Museum will lead visitors on a guided tour of the wreck of the Dutch merchant ship Amsterdam (1749), the coastline, the 4000 year old prehistoric forest and the Cretaceous rocks from the age of the dinosaurs 130 million years ago. All the tours last around an hour.

Please wear appropriate footwear as the walk will involve walking on wet sand, and bring warm clothing as the beach is exposed and can be cool and windy even in summer.
