Martin Enterprises is proud to have had offices and studios within the heart of the historic Old Town of Hastings.
Come with us on a walk up the High Street, and just click on any coloured text to discover more about the various shops and attractions.
Turning our back to the sea and looking northward, a plaque on the raised pavement to the left declares it to be the position of the great seagate erected in 1385.

The pictures below shows some of the interesting shops to be found including Shirley Leaf & Petal Co. with their unique leaf museum and Harris a restaurant specialising in Tapas
Turning up the road to the left brings us to the old church of St Clements, and the photo looks across at it over the little memorial garden which marks the spot of an inn destroyed during the war.
Going on up the Street we pass the Old Town Museum on the left, The Professional Centre is a health shop and complementary therapies health centre.
Also on the right Interior Illusions sells all sorts of beautiful gifts and candles.
Gannets on the right provides breakfasts, snacks and dinners, whilst The Jenny Lind hotel is opposite Courthouse Street - where you can find Reeve's objets d'art & Bio-five-O healthcare shops - and has Stone Corner on the corner selling beautiful jewellery and stones.
Continuing up the High Street takes us past various interesting bric-a-brac shops on both sides of the road, as well as the High Street Bookshop on the left and Blue Wave art gallery.
We then come to a general store and off-licence that until recently was the old town Post Office on the left opposite a covered pathway on the right leading to The Old Brewery Centre.
On the corner of Roebuck Street stands a great old town pub The Duke of Wellington.

Beyond this the high street becomes mainly residential, but worth a visit is another pub the "First In Last Out" which brews it's own ales.
Just past the impressive St Mary Star of the Sea catholic church, the High Street bends to the right encompassing the famous "Stables Theatre" as it rejoins the main A259 coast road.

We hope you have enjoyed your virtual visit and look forward to welcoming you personally sometime.
