This is the start of a curving street called the Friars. On your left is the Seven Stars pub, it does good pub food and is a favourite lunchtime haunt of many people. Just down the street is Thanet Business supplies, from where I buy my fax paper and other stationery needs.
Ahead is the Marlowe Theatre, the large lump on the top is the scenery drop. Get closer to the the Theatre for some vitriol on this.
