Eastbourne

Breathe in that fresh sea air as you approach the beautiful coastal town of Eastbourne, famous for its lush rolling landscapes, stunning beaches and iconic chalk sea cliffs. Enjoy coastal breaks hunting for fossils with the kids, admire the sights of the seafront on a stroll along Beachy Head - the UK’s highest chalk sea cliff, or enjoy soaking up some rays at the seaside. But Eastbourne isn't just sun, sand and sea; head away from the beaches and explore the rolling hills, ancient woodlands and picture perfect villages within the South Down National Park.
