Brighton, Eastbourne & Hastings
Eastbourne Castles, battles and landscapes provide the backdrop to this south coast holiday. The extraordinary Regency Palace at Brighton contrasts with the tranquillity of Hever Castle. See where history was made at Battle Abbey and explore the Cinque Port of Rye, now silted up but formerly on the coast.
From the Victorian pier and three tier promenade, to a world-class marina and vibrant watersports centre, Eastbourne is both a classic and modern English seaside town.
A natural gateway to the South Downs, it attracts thousands of visitors looking to get away from it all. It is also a wonderful base to explore the glorious surrounding countryside and the Sussex Coast.
You’re only a short drive away from Battle Abbey, famous site of the Battle of Hastings.
Ultimately, the beach dominates the activities in Eastbourne itself. And, whether you’re listening to music in the 1930s bandstand or simply dipping your toes in the Quality Coast award-winning waters, it’s easy to see why the beach is so popular.
For a small city, Brighton packs a big personality. Londoners and other English travelers love escaping here for its pretty pebble beach; pier and seaside recreation; and special cultural and culinary appeal. But the rest of the world is slowly discovering that Brighton, and its adjacent city of Hove, make for an easygoing, easy-to-love waterfront hub that’s worth making time to visit.
