A former haunt of upper class citizens in Victorian and Edwardian times, Bexhill on Sea, now drives a more modern and diverse group of tourists to visit the East Sussex coast.

Along with the healthy sea air, visitors are also drawn to the 2 mile promenade and the De La Warr Pavilion. Now used an arts centre, the grade 1 listed building is one of the town’s best examples of Modernist architecture.  As Bexhill is located in the heart of 1066 country, it’s not the only monument or castle to explore, though the town and surrounding area have more than just built history to celebrate. In the 1900’s Bexhill On Sea played host to the 1st ever British Motor Race, celebrated in the Motoring Heritage Centre.  With Egerton park and Bexhill’s outdoor sports facilities also proving a draw, this seaside town has all the ingredients for a day out.
