Cllr Ali Roark, lead for Environment at Hastings Borough Council, said:
"We are delighted to be helping support local businesses by providing free parking in our car parks over the festive period, making it easier and cheaper for residents and visitors to enjoy all the fantastic shops and restaurants in the town centre and Old Town.
"Whether you are shopping for gifts for your family or friends or looking for Christmas treats for yourself, you will be sure to find something unique to purchase.
"And if you don't fancy bringing the car, remember that the government's bus fare cap has been extended until December 2024, meaning you can travel on most bus routes for just £2."
