A resort town that burst into life in the 19th century, Eastbourne has pretty much everything you’d want from a coastal town, and then some. The town is littered with historic buildings, including a stunning Napoleonic fort and the truly iconic Beachy Head lighthouse, while the Grand Parade that handsomely separates the beach from the town is full of prime Victorian-era architecture. Check out which Eastbourne hotel you should stay in with our handy guide to ensure you’re always close to the heart of the action. The 300-metre long pier is the town’s centrepiece and just a short walk from several amazing theatres, the world-class Towner Art Gallery and the gorgeous Bandstand, which puts on everything from pop tribute acts to live orchestras, all with the stunning beach and English channel backdrop. With so much to offer, you’ll never be left wondering what to do in Eastbourne.
