I have to plug the local traders on Hayling Island as they do help to keep the special charm of our Island. There are a wide selection of local shops selling a variety of goods and services. For basic necessities, food, newsagents and beach-type products, then Hayling’s traders will meet all your needs.
If you want a more complete shopping experience, then I would recommend going to Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth for a waterside shopping complex environment.
Alternatively, Chichester has an olde worlde feel to it with its cobbled streets, cathedral and boutique-style shops
