Stay right on Eastbourne’s seafront!

The hotel is situated right on Eastbourne seafront and just a short stroll from the bandstand and resort attractions, so it's easy to get out explore something new each day - particularly as Eastbourne is such a flat and easy to walk destination! 

The sea breeze swishing through your hair, the sensation of the beach between your toes and the smell of vinegary chips lingering in your nostrils: everyone has vivid memories of their childhood seaside holidays and the traditional Victorian holiday resort of Eastbourne is one of our best-loved choices. Eastbourne has a charm unrivalled on the south coast, with dazzling floral displays, magnificent Carpet Gardens, a delightful Victorian pier and a famous bandstand. The resort boasts a fantastic beach, with eight miles of coastline sheltered by the South Downs, itself designated ‘An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. 

We also explore the delightful resorts of Brighton, Lewes, Hastings and Rye as part of your INCLUDED excursion programme!

Alexandra Hotel

This is a lovely family run hotel, located in prime position on Eastbourne's seafront and close to all of the great town's amenities including its theatres, bandstand, pier and town centre. It boasts a pretty seaview restaurant & patio and great evening entertainment twice a week. All 38 comfortable bedrooms can be reached by lift and offer all the usual amenities you would expect

Day 1

After joining the coach, we head south and east towards the delightful seaside resort of Eastbourne. There will be convenient coffee/lunch stops along the way and we aim to arrive at the lovely seafront Alexandra Hotel in the late afternoon. After checking in and unpacking, why not relax in the bar with a drink or take a stroll along the seafront before enjoying a lovely dinner and in-house entertainment.

Days 2-4

Enjoy a hearty breakfast every day along with free time to enjoy Eastbourne on your own. Make sure you also join us for your INCLUDED excursions to Brighton, Lewes, Hastings & Rye and return to the hotel every evening for more tasty dinners and entertainment.

Day 5

After a final breakfast, it is sadly time to make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.


Head along the coast road, through the towns of Seaford and Rottingdean, to the resort of Brighton. Also known as ‘Doctor Brighton’ and ‘London by the Sea’, the unique blend of outrageous architecture and quaint streets has made Brighton England’s most fashionable resort for over 200 years. Wander ‘The Lanes’, the oldest quarter, lined with 17th century fishermen’s cottages.


At the heart of rural Sussex lies the beautiful county market town of Lewes - a mixture of the unusual and intriguing and so typically Sussex. Its medieval streets, old English churches and tiny twittens (a Sussex word for alleyway) allow visitors a glimpse into the true essence of bygone Lewes. Although surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape is dominated by the remains of a Norman castle and is also home to the handsome townhouse of Anne of Cleves (fourth wife of King Henry Vlll). For beer lovers, it is also home to the excellent Harveys Brewery!

Hastings & Rye

To the east of Eastbourne, we find Hastings, a seaside resort and fishing port. The tall, wooden huts used for drying the fishing nets still remain. It’s better known for the battle of Hastings in 1066. However, the most famous battle in England’s history actually took place 7 miles further north, where the small town of Battle lies. West of the old town is the beach, and beyond that you’ll find lots of Georgian and Victorian buildings. Hastings also boasts a lively arts scene. The medieval and walled town and port of Rye is a little further along the coast, with twisting cobbled streets and lanes and some great old buildings, many of them timber framed. St Mary’s church has one of the oldest functioning church turret clocks in the country. You can see it up close by climbing the tower which also offers splendid views of Rye Bay
