Admire the UK’s largest Eric Ravilious Collection

Eastbourne, East Sussex

Discover the largest national collection of Eric Ravilious’ beautiful South Downs inspired watercolours, plus touring art exhibitions at Towner.

Towner Art Gallery is home to the largest collection of works by renowned Eastbourne-born artist Eric Ravilious who was famously inspired and constantly drawn back to the beautiful South Downs landscape with its dramatic cliff line, fascinating white chalk figures carved into the hills and its wild seascape, as the muse for his hundreds of watercolour works.

At the contemporary art gallery, just a stone’s throw away from the sea, explore the Eric Ravilious Rooms and many more free exhibitions this summer, from leading international contemporary artists to celebrated Sussex artists, many inspired by the stunning national park scenery on the South Coast.

Finish off your visit with coffee and cake at the gallery's top floor café providing fantastic views out towards the stunning South Downs.
