Eastbourne is known as the Sunshine Coast, voted sunniest place in Great Britain in 2007. Living here it is easy to understand why. We have a protected climate, as we are in a 10 mile bay from Beachy Head in the west, to Hastings in the east. On the landward side we have the South Downs, so snow is a rarity, a mild climate is the norm, and wild winter seas with nature at its most interesting.

Eastbourne is ideal for a short break, or longer holiday at any time of the year. 

It also offers good dining choices with excellent local beers.

There is the Victorian Pier which dates back to 1872, two local adventure playgrounds, one of which is under cover, a good choice of restaurants and numerous parks and gardens.

Eastbourne has Sovereign Marina. Drusillas Family Zoo is only a 15 minute drive away, and a full day can be spent there.

For walkers, Eastbourne is at the eastern end of the South Downs Way, starting with Beachy Head. The views are simply awesome, and there is a bus service to aid the stroller who does not want to undertake long walks. Seven Sisters, Birling Gap, all follow on from Beachy Head.

As far as the other places of interest are concerned, Eastbourne has mini golf and mini railways on the doorstep, and 1066 Country very close by. Castles such as Pevensey, Herstmonceux, and Battle are living history. Pevensey Castle is an English Heritage site, now 2 miles inland further than when it was first built, Herstmonceux is a 15th Century moated castle. Battle Abbey is at the end of Battle village, with its old shops. The Abbey has events throughout the year, as well as the battlefield with audio guide.

The above is just a taster of what is on offer for the visitor to Eastbourne. We will be pleased to provide you with brochures and further information subject to place of interest being open.
