What’s On

Eastbourne boasts award-winning clean beaches and excellent seafront facilities.  With an average of 34.6 hours of sunshine a week, the resort has also been named the sunniest place in Britain in the Halifax Quality of Life Survey.

And Eastbourne has far more to offer than sea and sunshine.  There are first class shopping facilities, museums, theatres, cinemas, restaurants, pubs and a buzzing nightlife.

Eastbourne also marks the start of the South Downs and the 100 mile-long South Downs Way, a popular and relaxing route for walking, cycling and bird-watching holidays. If the fresh sea air inspires you, you may like to take a gentle cliff-top walk along the impressive white cliffs, of which Beachy Head is the most famous.  The highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, Beachy Head rises 530 feet above the sea below and is well worth a visit. Beyond Beachy Head is the Seven Sisters country park, an ideal destination for nature lovers.

Or how about a gentle round of golf?  Eastbourne itself boasts three golf courses, with no less than six more within easy travelling distance.

Eastbourne’s Official Tourism website has listings of local attractions, activities, beaches and shopping as well as details of all major events such as International Tennis week, Airbourne Airshow, Feastbourne, Beachy Head Marathon, our Beer festival, Bandstand Concerts and much more:
