Hastings

Hastings is a "small" city in the south of England with a beach, port, fields and gardens. It is a coastal town located less than two hours by train from London. Being a seaside town, it is not as cold as other places; in summer it is a very good temperature. 

Hastings is an ideal location to learn English as the area is not very touristy and there are not as many Spanish people as there are in other cities. It is a nice quiet town, a lot like other coastal cities like Brighton or Eastbourne.
