Eastbourne boasts all the fun of the seaside with beaches, promenade, a traditional bandstand, tourist land train, pleasure pier and the famous Carpet Gardens. We stay at the resort’s Best Western York House Hotel, situated on Royal Parade just a minute from the beach. It has a comfy bar lounge and a furnished seafront terrace. We visit Brighton where you’ll find a landmark pier and the Grade I listed Royal Pavilion, then continue to Worthing, home to a palm fringed promenade. On another day we head to Hastings where the well-preserved Old Town features narrow streets, half-timbered dwellings and a keep and bailey castle. We move on to nearby Battle where the abbey was built on the site of the conflict. Our day is rounded off with a visit to Carr Taylor Wines Vineyard followed by tea & cakes. We also spend a morning in the market town of Lewes.
This graceful Victorian hotel stands on Eastbourne’s Royal Parade just a minute from the beach and 400 yards from the pleasure pier. Great facilities include a comfy lounge bar and a furnished seafront terrace where you can enjoy refreshments. The hotel was recently awarded a certificate of excellence by TripAdvisor.
