  Pedestrian tunnel with the images of the battle
by Airpunk
 
 

A small pedestrian tunnel links the old town with the modern town center of Hastings. Perhaps, the tunnel would be nothing special, if it wasn't decorated with some stylised scenes known from the Bayeux Tapestry. The scenes include the coronation of Harold Godwinson, the Normans crossing the channel, a battle scene and the death of Harold. OK, these mosaics are far away from being as impressive as the original tapestry. But it is a fancy idea and looks really nice.

Directions: Under Albert Road, linking Wellington Place with Castle Street.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
