Sandwiched between Eastbourne and Hastings is the vibrant East Sussex coastal town of Bexhill-on-Sea, with its traditional, two-mile promenade with deck chairs and beach huts. Bexhill-on-Sea is also home to the world-famous De La Warr Pavilion, which features excellent arts programmes throughout the year. There are many interesting shops, museums and town gardens, plus a motoring heritage centre, as the town was home to the first British motor race meeting.

Within easy travelling distance from Bexhill-on-Sea are the historic market towns of Hastings and Battle with its abbey. Battle is the famous site of the Norman conquest at the Battle of Hastings in 1066; there's an interpreted walk and museum etc which is great for a family day out. The maritime Cinque Port of Rye offers narrow cobbled streets filled with antique and independent shops and tea rooms, while boats pass along the river.
