Eastbourne in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... in my view isn't a bad thing as most of the seafront buildings are Victorian it would be a travesty if they were pulled down to make way for ugly glass eyesores, like the TGWU headquarters. What sites in Eastbourne There are numerous parks in Eastbourne ,Devonshire Park being the most well known , every June female Tennis players come for the Tournament and people flock to the Town to watch the play at Devonshire Park.Devonshire Park is situated in the Town centre. Then there is Gildredge Park, this was the original Manor House and grounds,Alas no more the 'Towner Art Gallery' used to be situated inside of the Manor house, but was moved... more

Eastbourne, yes I've heard all the jokes, gods waiting room, cemetery with Lights , but it doesn't phase me. It is true that the population in Eastbourne is Older than the national average of almost 98,000 ,60% of residents are in fact pensioners.You only have to look at the figures of centenarians living in the town to realise that maybe Eastbourne in some way extends these peoples lives.It was thought in the early 1800's that fresh sea air was beneficial to the health.Today it holds the coveted title of sunniest place in the UK...I'd like to know where all the sun is because my fingers are turning blue ..

Eastbourne - God's waiting room - The land of the dead - Oh and my home town! Its not all bad, I must confess - Although I now live in Manchester, I still hold memories of Eastbourne. Shopping - With the Arndale and the Enterprise shopping centres in town, you do have a fair selection of shops - Some a bit more unusual in forms floating around the Enterprise centre (which you cannot miss if you travel to the Bourne Via train), and also your general retailers around the Arndale and high street. Dining - This I can not hold fault at, as opposed to chain after chain (I.E Cafe Rouge, Bella Italia Etc Etc) You have refreshing ... Read the complete review

Well I am not born and bred in Eastbourne, and chose to move here a few years ago, because I love this town. It is not 'God's waiting room', as people would have you believe (but don't tell too many people, as I love this town the way it is and do not want it to change). It is a very clean, tidy, typically Victorian seaside resort. Neighbouring towns of Brighton and Hastings are much dirtier and their buildings are a mish mash, here (mostly) the architecture is still very much Victorian (on the seafront). We have great theatre's, cinema's and a whole host of restaurants - Pommodoro Mozzarella being my favourite. There are so many events throughout the year that are . Read the complete review

I have lived near eastbourne my whole life. It is very close to towns such a lewes and brighton. Although very close to Brighton, it is a very different style of town. Eastbourne is cleaner and quieter which generally attracts the older generation. The sea froont in eastbounre is so so vwell kept, with a lovely peir which has a couple of pubs and arcades and the deck chairs which everyone wants on the summer. The Sea front has a lovely traditional bandstand and stunning flowerbeds and gardens, ideal for sitting in when the weather allows. Shopping in Eastbourne isnt the best, there is a small shopping centre, but not with the best ... Read the complete review

Eastbourne, the sunshine town with quiet dignity, fantastic shopping and no crowds. For the unusual why not try shopping at The Enterprise Shopping Centre, right behind the station. I got a fab fairy from Brightest Blessings on the first floor. The centre has food and gifts to delight every taste. I am definately going back for more fairies and dragons at much less than Brighton and without the crush.
