Tourism

complete with flume and waves. Just 1 mile from Pevensey Bay is Sovereign Harbour where you can while away time watching the many boats come and go.

 

Drive the 4 miles along Eastbourne Seafront and you will wind your way up to Beachy Head. Walking there, you will have spectacular views inland as well as over the sea. Look back along the coast to see our bay – it is huge ! Walk far enough and you will reach Cuckmere haven from where you can look back to see the famous Severn Sisters chalk cliffs.

 

Inland you will find the beautiful rolling Sussex Countryside. Herstmonceux Castle might be modern, but its grounds house a Science Centre complete with Observatory. The street market in the small market town of Hailsham is nearby, and Alfriston offers quaint streets and even a zoo. The Long Man of Wilmington, towers above the pretty village of Wilmington, and a white horse, cut into the hill, looks down over Littlington. Lewes, its history, and its shops “with a difference” is only a short journey away. Many historic houses and beautiful gardens are within easy reach

 

There are walks all around, including one that crosses the fields and hugs the river between Pevensey and Pevensey Bay. Want to walk further ? – then the 1066 walk will take you miles and miles.

 

Go East and you will travel over the marshlands and soon be in Hastings. The Old Town is unique. Built under the cliffs, there are narrow streets with all manner of shops. You can climb the cliff yourself, or take one of the historic lifts, one open air and one in a tunnel, if you’d like to visit Hastings Castle or St Clements Caves. Further along the coast is Rye, with its cobbled street leading down to fishing huts beside the river. A place well worth a visit.

 

Ride on the Romney to Hythe miniature railway, and go back in time as you drive to the wild beach at Dungeness. Even further down the coast you will find Dover with its impressive Castle and wartime headquarters built inside the cliff..
