There are many cute shops and cafes to explore. It’s nice to see this area coming to life! I wish I could the name of the bakery that had really delicious things. You will have to try them all.

Lovely area just to roam and take in the atmosphere and see the old area of Hastings and St Just Mr Foyle's house.

Oh yes only pedestrian traffic allowed in certain areas - which makes it comfortable enough to sit and enjoy an afternoon drink :)!
