Trains to Eastbourne

Eastbourne grew into a thriving coastal resort in the Victorian era, and in 1849 the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway constructed a much-needed railway link to cater for growing numbers of holidaymakers and day-trippers. In some ways, little has changed – trains to Eastbourne still bring in crowds of visitors eager for some classic seaside fun. And as you head along the waterfront towards the bustling pier, you'll still see a succession of Victorian guesthouses facing out to sea. The station has history too. Dating back to 1886, it's a Grade II-listed building with a charming clock tower and spire. Its former goods shed has been claimed by Eastbourne's modern side, and now houses the Enterprise Shopping Centre. For more shopping, head down Terminus Road opposite the station to reach the town centre – or explore Eastbourne's underappreciated arts connections at the Towner Gallery, a 10-minute walk south down Gildredge Road and College Road.
