Waterfront sights in Eastbourne
- Sort by:
Eastbourne's quaintly ramshackle pier is a lovable piece of Victoriana jutting out into the chilly Channel. All its tearooms, fish-and-chip counters, twopence machines and fortune-tellers are firmly in place and there's a popular student nightclub at the very tip.
A lovely vantage point for the sunset, Eastbourne's pretty filigree-trimmed pier also has a curious Victorian Camera Obscura that projects images of the outside world into a dish within a darkened room. In July daredevils in feathery frocks hurl themselves from the pier in the annual birdman competition.
