The Seafront


The pinnacle of Eastbourne is its glorious seafront with lovely cafes and small businesses dotted along the promenade. Stretching four miles, it makes for a fantastic walk with views to neighbouring towns and the famous Beachy Head cliffs.

During the summer you’ll find plenty of bustling markets and events such as the Airbourne festival drawing thousands of friendly faces down to the seafront. Join them with a scoop of ice cream from one of the local ice cream parlours and a dip in the ocean whilst watching the world go by.

Beachy Head

Once you’ve completed the walk to the iconic red and white lighthouse at the top of the cliffs, why not enjoy a warm meal and a pint at the Beachy Head Pub?
