If you're looking for a trip to the seaside Eastbourne is a great choice. It's packed full of charm from Victorian hotels along the seafront facing towards the iconic 19th-century Eastbourne Pier and art-deco inspired bandstand or take some time out in the South Downs National Park and take in some of the awe-inspiring views from Beachy Head and its striped lighthouse. 

Visitors can often be found strolling along the 3-mile promenade lined with palms or if you fancy a longer walk then head towards the Heritage Coastline to the world-famous Seven Sisters. Closer to the heart of Eastbourne you'll also find Towner Art Gallery which includes modern British works and Redoubt Fortress, built during the Napoleonic Wars complete with a military museum.
