|Bexhill-on-Sea seems to have retained all the best qualities of English life since the turn of the last century whilst managing to avoid most of the unpleasant influences which seem to have plagued so many other towns.|
|Renowned for its health giving air since Victorian times
and enjoying probably the best climate on the south coast,
Bexhill has been kept a jealously guarded secret by residents
and those people who visit year after year.
With its Victorian and Edwardian architecture Bexhill-on-Sea has a strange magnetism which encourages those who leave - to return and those who visit - to stay.
|There is always something very comforting to come home
to the quality of life and the safety of this cosy town.
The wide level promenade, gently sloping award winning clean beach, the expanse of sand at low tide and the famous 1930's De La Warr Pavilion, providing quality entertainment throughout the year, are the obvious focal points of the town, but Bexhill-on-Sea is much more.
|The compact shopping centres, the variety of good eating places, the
selection of friendly quality hotels and guest houses and the pretty 'continental-style'
pavement cafes facing the sea make it a superb, self-contained seaside town.
For the more energetic, Bexhill has more than its fair share of facilities, including a very active sailing club, a rowing club, a modern, superbly equipped leisure centre, an indoor pool with flume and wave machine, a state of the art ten pin bowling complex, tennis courts in Egerton Park, out door bowling clubs and an indoor bowling pavilion. If that's not enough, Bexhill-on-Sea boasts two of the finest golf courses in Sussex.
|Steeped in history since napoleonic times, Bexhill-on-Sea hosted the first British motor race meeting in 1902. This was celebrated each year, until recently, with the Festival of Motoring on the first Bank Holiday in May. Bexhill-on-Sea also became infamous for allowing the first mixed bathing in this country at the turn of the century. Bexhill also has a wealth of cultural, dramatic, operatic, recreational, social and sporting clubs.|
It is the perfect location being only just over an hour away from the Shuttle, the Channel ferry ports and Gatwick Airport, two hours from London, and 20 minutes from the magnificent Eastbourne Marina.
So you see, Bexhill is much more than it seems. It offers something for everyone, all ages, families, couples and singles. Bexhill-on-Sea is waiting to be discovered and enjoyed - by you.
