Small shops in narrow, traffic free shops. We spent several happy house on two days mooching around. Excellent antique shops. Loads of good places to eat.

“Retro treasures, vintage clothing and furniture.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

Easy to spend money in these little streets, they sell everything, nostalgia particularly and try to catch the latest Winkle sculpture in polished metal - great. Visit the Jerwood Gallery for contemporary and older art.

“Much improved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

The old town just gets better and better. I was here last July, when I was pleased to see Hastings looking so well...but things have got better. A really interesting mix of retail makes for plenty of shopping fun.
