Visit Eastbourne 2021
This year’s guide includes information on Eastbourne’s COVID-Ready scheme, the first destination scheme of its kind in the UK, with participating businesses displaying the window sticker as well as being indicated throughout the guide.
Packed with COVID-Ready places to stay and four pages of events, see the world’s top tennis stars in June at the International Tennis tournament, discover some hidden gems at the Walking Festival or sample local real ales and cider at one of the beer and cider festivals.
From romantic walks, forest bathing and trails to discover, Eastbourne also offers plenty of ways to get active from a round of golf against a stunning coastal backdrop to mountain biking through National Park forest, paragliding from Beachy Head or a kayaking adventure in the Cuckmere Valley. Hundreds of walks and cycling trails also make it easy to explore, why not visit the famous lighthouse on foot with a cliffside walk down to the hidden beach?
Younger visitors will enjoy visiting the award-winning zoo, riding the giant seafront observation wheel or splashing about in the pirate lagoon, while the cliffside beaches provide the perfect place for inquisitive minds to explore marine life in the many rock pools while hunting for fossils.
Food connoisseurs can visit local vineyards and the renowned Long Man Brewery, named after the mysterious giant chalk hillside figure, or dine on a seafront restaurant terrace with views towards the South Downs at sunset.
Discover toe-tapping tribute acts at the Bandstand, find inspiration from internationally renowned artists at Towner Art Gallery and enjoy a sensational line-up of West End theatre favourites at the Devonshire Quarter.
All this and more, make Eastbourne the ideal break for making those perfect holiday memories!
