No walk in St Leonards can be without its Burton connections and this walk will be no exception but, there is more to St Leonards than James and Decimus Burton and my aim is to walk you through some of the history and the legends that surround the town.
It is not a flat walk, although the start is along the promenade, but you will be rewarded with the sight of another St Leonards on Sea, exploring some of the hidden treasures, from the modern to the slightly older, and all with a rich history.
It should take you an hour to walk but it is not for the fast paced and there is a Quiz to keep all ages occupied.
Take your time and enjoy all that St Leonards on Sea has to offer.

Starting at Hastings Pier, this walk will take you away from the seafront to rummage amongst the antiques shops, look at the galleries, browse in bookshops or to just enjoy the walk to King’s Road.
The King's Road Street Market is held the first Saturday of the summer months but just check at www.verystleonards-on-sea.co.uk before you walk.
Finally, the walk ends at Warrior Square Station to catch the train back to Hastings or, if feeling energetic, you can retrace some of your steps down London Road and walk back to the promenade.
