Favourite Cities and Hotels in United Kingdom

England has a plethora of idyllic, throwback seaside towns, each with a singular brand of charm and eclectic ensemble of attractions. Of the lot, Eastbourne surely has to rank as one of the best. The East Sussex town of 98,000 people is a venerable destination that sits across the English Channel from Dieppe, France and the Seine-Maritime department of Haute-Normandie.

Eastbourne’s development as an elegant coastal town took off in earnest in the late Victorian period. Remarkably however, this enviable span of south coast England was a settlement as far back as the Stone Age. The Roman Empire kept a small outpost in what is now Eastbourne and throughout the Middle Ages, the town was well-regarded. In the mid-18th century, Eastbourne was proclaimed as “The Empress of Watering Places" and indeed, while the name hasn’t stuck, the reputation certainly has to some degree. In addition to the expansive coast, the nostalgic town unfurls a lovely array of landmarks, from the 13th century Saint Mary’s Church to Eastbourne Downs. South Downs is a magnificent recent addition to England’s national park system and the spirited Eastbourne Festival offers a great excuse to visit the south coast. Other worthwhile points of interest include a vintage Camera Obscura (come at sunset), the Eastbourne Heritage Centre and Museum of Shops.

EASTBOURNE RUNDOWN

People have inhabited this part of the Sussex south coast since the Stone Age, but Eastbourne’s time to shine only really came with the advent of steam, quickly turning the town into a top seaside resort. Hordes of Victorian passengers piled off trains to enjoy the sunshine, the beaches and the attractions on Eastbourne’s Grand Parade or listen to music at the Bandstand. Eastbourne’s suitability as a holiday destination was hinted at earlier though – in 1793 George III brought the kids (Edward, Octavius, Elizabeth and Sophia to be precise) to Eastbourne for their summer hols. ...

Eastbourne does not do seaside tack and in many respects it attracts for the same reasons it did in Victorian times. Back then, just as now you could hire a deckchair, or take a constitutional along filigree-trimmed Eastbourne Pier with its quirky Camera Obscura.

But, unlike the Victorians, you can now hire out a kayak from the beach opposite Wish Tower Hill or take the Hop on Hop off City Sightseeing Bus to get your bearings. Alternatively jump aboard the cute little Dotto Train which stops at Treasure Island, Fort Fun, the Sovereign Centre and Atlantic Drive.

· Wettest months are October and November based on previous years’ statistics, but just like any other British seaside resort showers can turn up at any time of year. Take a brolly or dash for cover.
