About Eastbourne, East Sussex

Eastbourne is a town, seaside resort in East Sussex on the south coast of England, 19 miles (31 km) east of Brighton. Eastbourne is immediately to the east of Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Great Britain and part of the larger Eastbourne Downland Estate.

It is a popular area for people looking to escape city life and in 2013 was voted the fourth best place to live by the sea in the UK.

As a seaside resort Eastbourne has a large and increasing income from tourism, with revenue from tourism increased by conferences, public events and cultural sightseeing. Eastbourne has a broad economic base and is home to companies in a wide range of industries in trade and retail, healthcare, education, construction, manufacturing, professional scientific and the technical sector.

Eastbourne has regeneration underway with an £85million investment to improve the town centre, develop the shopping and recreational facilities at the Arndale Centre and build the Devonshire Park sport and cultural complex. Combine this with Eastbourne’s direct trains to London Victoria, it will only attract more people to this fantastic location and property prices are likely to continue to rise.

Eastbourne is the amongst the fastest growing seaside towns in the UK. It is predicted by Savills that in the next 4 years the South East will see around a further 20-25% rise in property prices.
