Norman Road. Swoon. St Leonards on Sea.

Shopping for things you want to delight yourself and friends. A very fine art gallery of modern British Art, another of Russian Art, (which is the best art gallery in St Leonards?), a great treasure trove of an antique shop, gifty shops, craft shops, home brewing shops, a 60s & 70s ¬†cult furniture shop, a clothing emporium with items from films and TV as well….it has to be fun!
