The picture postcard setting featured at the end of the film ‘Atonement’ is hugely popular for an indulgent escape spent practicing photography and art, with the coastguard cottages the perfect place to pick up a paintbrush.
Guided by your tutor, both beginners and experienced painters can create a masterpiece in a day of painting from this unique position overlooking the dramatic coastline.
Many artists have painted the Cuckmere Valley, including Eric Ravilious, and more of his work can be discovered in the Ravilious Room at Towner in Eastbourne. This modern gallery features mainly free exhibitions and attracts internationally renowned artists every year.
