Travellers arriving at the pavilion-style Bexhill station step out from beneath the canopies into fresh sea air and a view down to the water. Ever since its arrival in the late 19th century, the railway has been vital in the development of Bexhill-on-Sea as a resort town on the East Sussex coast. The current station, with its Grade II listed building, opened in 1902 and currently has regular services to Brighton, London Victoria and Hastings.
Probably the most famous landmark in Bexhill-on-Sea is the Modernist De La Warr Pavilion, built in 1935 in the Art Deco and International Style, and one of the largest arts centres and galleries on the south coast. The De La Warr Pavilion is on the seafront and is a ten-minute walk from the station through the town centre. Not far from the Pavilion is Egerton Park, alongside which you will find the Bexhill Museum.
