Queens Arcade
The Queens Avenue - The Arcade -  Hastings

Right Map of the Arcade in 1882, the layout is still the same today "The main avenue has a width of 14 feet and is covered by an ornamental iron and glass roof" and is entered through an easily-missed entrance opposite Hastings Town Hall  in Queens Road and exits into York Buildings/Wellington Place,  one of the town centre's pedestrianised areas.  The Town Hall was built at the same time as the Arcade when Victorian Hastings was expanding to the west of the Old Town.
