A short dead end road at the Eastern side of the Old Town, Rock-a-Nore Road sits at the base of East Hill.

To the North side of the road are fish and chips shops, cafés and restaurants. Mid way along is the entrance to the East Hill Lift, Funicular Railway. A new hotel is also under construction.

To the South side is the Jerwood Gallery, fishing net huts, fish mongers, a museum in an old chapel, and at the end of the road is an aquarium.
