Did you know...

  • The seafront at Eastbourne is distinctive in having few shop fronts opening onto it, the road being almost entirely populated by Victorian hotels. This is because much of Eastbourne has traditionally belonged to the Duke of Devonshire, who retains the rights to these buildings and does not allow them to be developed into shops.
  • Charles Dickens, Sir Ernest Shackleton, Tommy Cooper and George Orwell all lived in Eastbourne.
  • The seafront and the iconic cliff at Beachy Head has been used for many scenes in feature films including 'Notes on a scandal' and 'Harry Potter.'.
