Enjoy a winter wonderland by Eastbourne beach

Eastbourne, East Sussex

Enjoy a coastal experience with a Christmas twist in Eastbourne with markets, a charity Santa fun run and much more.

Wrap up warm and enjoy Eastbourne’s stunning coastline this winter, and along the way you’ll discover the transformation of Eastbourne Bandstand into a magical Winter Wonderland, with Christmas delights galore including festive food, mulled wine and the chance to meet Santa and his elves in their Grotto.

If you’re lucky, on your way you might catch the Santa Fun Run with a host of Santas running along Eastbourne promenade raising money for charity. Continue towards Holywell and you’ll be greeted by a warming hot chocolate at the Holywell Tea Chalet, where you can relax and take in the stunning surroundings of the South Downs National Park.
