Then this is the place for you. A collection of independent shops and eateries with some interesting goods on sale. There are bargains to be had, but these are mixed up with the usual high priced items and people who sell them, so watch out! It is definitely the place to be, even if you re made to feel you...

The old town in Hastings is full of little shops with interesting items. Some bric a brac but you can find treasures amongst the junk. You can easily spend a couple of hours going from shop to shop.

Amazing place to visit - not many towns left like this in the UK anymore! Really picturesque and steeped in history and art. Loads to do and great places to eat, drink, play and chill.

the vibe, the ambience, the whole area, has a totally different feel to the rest of Hastings. There are plenty of places to find a good meal, lots of flea markets and a really bohemian feel. Seek out the Electric Palace theatre.

Walking by the sea front to The Old Town is a delight. Once there, step back in time, cobbled streets, individual shops to browse in, do check out Golden Hands Gift shop, George Street Free Gift Wrap on a wonderful selection for adults and children alike.

This is one area of Hastings I never tire of visitng, with it's interesting shops and variety of architecture. It does not take a lot of time to explorw unless you want to get lost in all the side streets vsiting the hidden antique shops.
