George St, High St junction
High Street, Hastings
At just less than 0.4 miles long the High Street has over one hundred listed buildings and structures, accounting for most of the Street.

Running diagonally from South-West to North-East. The South-West half starts from the junction of East Parade (A229), the buildings are predominantly shops, with flats above and contains a varied mix of shops such as antique shops, bric-a-brac, art shops and galleries, pubs and cafés, and the 'famous' Judge's Bakery. Half way along the street can be found, a cinema, the old town hall, and old post office. The middle to North-West is predominately housing, and near the end St Mary's of the Sea church. The road then re-joins with The Bourne (also the A229).
George Street
Running roughly West to East from Sturdee Place and High Street, George Street is a bustling pedestrianised street at the heart of Hastings Old Town.

The road contains a mixture of alternative shops, including antique shops, pubs and cafés, art and gift shops. There are very few high street brands.

Near the beginning of West end of George Street can be found an amusement arcade, and the entrance to the West Hill Lift, funicular railway.
