With special rates and discounts for groups, take a look at our top 10 attractions and ideas for your 2017/18 trip #1 REDOUBT FORTRESS & PAVILION EXHIBITION A must for heritage tours and history lovers! Explore the mysterious Redoubt Fortress. With daily tours and regular re-enactments, immerse yourself in the lives of the historical figures who once made up the fabric of this Napoleonic fortress. The vintage café is the perfect spot to refuel before visiting the free exhibition located at The Pavilion a few steps further along the seafront, to uncover the stories of life along the Seven Sisters over the past 8,000 years. #2 TOWNER GALLERY Culture vultures must include Towner on their itineraries! Our award-winning gallery is home to some 4,500 works including the largest body of work from artist Eric Ravilious. Book a tour or take a look behind the scenes. With some exciting exhibitions in 2017 including Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship English Artist Designers 1922 – 1942 from 27 May – 17 September 2017, it is a must visit! #3 EAST OF THE PIER HERITAGE TRAIL Discover old Eastbourne’s hidden history in our free Heritage Trail. With pop-up history corners, the trail will take your group on a journey of discovery at special interest sites to the East of the Pier including the Royal Hippodrome Theatre, where an extra trap door had to be installed in the 1920’s to accommodate Harry Houdini’s performance! #4 EASTBOURNE BANDSTAND With a huge range of concerts and an extended season in 2017, our 1930’s Bandstand is an iconic live music location perfect for groups. From traditional Silver Band afternoon concerts, the much loved 1812 firework concerts to toe-tapping tributes and themed music evenings, there is something for every group including great discounts. #5 EASTBOURNE THEATRES From top West End shows to immersive dramas, tea dances, laugh-out-loud comedy and some famous faces from the world of music and dance, Eastbourne Theatres and our busy line-up of entertainment should be part of any group itinerary. #6 DOTTO TRAIN Get your group on board this cute land train from Holywell beach to Sovereign Harbour and discover all the seafront gems in-between. Stop for ice-cream on the Pier, head to the Redoubt Fortress or have a group picnic at the breath-taking Holywell retreat. #7 WATER SPORTS Water babies can try a range of water sports to capture this truly beautiful destination from the sea. With taster sessions in paddle boarding, canoeing, windsurfing, kayaking and more, if your group is in need of a little exhilaration – Eastbourne has it! #8 HARBOUR BOAT TOURS One of Eastbourne’s best kept secrets, Sovereign Harbour and the Waterfront development is truly cosmopolitan. Climb aboard and learn about the harbour’s history and secrets. Go on a fishing trip or a sightseeing tour to the spectacular chalk cliffs and Beachy Head lighthouse. It’s a great spot for lunch or an evening meal too. #9 LUNCH WESTERN VIEW There are so many great eateries for groups but we simply love Western View with its bewitching beachfront setting and views to the South Downs National Park. #10 FIZZ ON FOOT WINE TASTING TOUR There are many themed breaks available in Eastbourne but a Fizz on Foot wine tasting tour is a perfect way of discovering the stunning coastal landscape whilst sampling some delightful local wine and food.
