Eastbourne The Essential
Sheltered by the South Downs, Eastbourne enjoys a particularly sunny climate. Sited 1.6km inland, it was originally an unassuming little farming village, but became the most elegant seaside resort in England thanks to William Cavendish, Duke of Devonshire (1808-1891). Eastbourne offers a model Victorian townscape, attracting and charming countless visitors with its majestic hotels and picturesque villas on tree-lined avenues.
