Out & About


Bexhill - Hidden Seaside Gem on the South Coast

Bexhill is that quintessential seaside town that time forgot. Nestled in the heart of “1066 Country” and in between the larger and busier towns of Hastings & Eastbourne yet within easy reach of both – Bexhill has maintained a very desirable, relaxing and safe environment for families of all ages and is the ideal springboard to our local towns and superb countryside. Subject to considerable recent investment our superb seafront is a delight to behold. If you are looking for a truly restful holiday you won’t be disappointed.

The De La Warr Pavilion

The De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill

Built in the 1920’s as a theatre and arts centre the De La Warr Pavilion sits proudly on the Bexhill seafront offering panoramic sea views from a timeless age. This unique art deco building provides excellent food and hosts numerous shows and exhibitions. In 2005, it was reopened to the public after an £8 million restoration and refurbishment project. It now claims to be the principal centre for contemporary art and architecture on the south coast.

Bexhill Shopping – “Quaint, Quirky & Unique”
