    Eastbourne – 8 Quirky Facts

    1. Sunny Side Up
      It’s one of the sunniest places in the UK with an average of 1888 hours of sunshine a year. Due to its unique position against the Downs, it also has its own micro-climate and while other nearby towns hide under their umbrellas, the area around Beachy Head often pushes strong winds and rain away from Eastbourne.
    2. Plane Spotting
      Airbourne is Europe’s largest seaside air shows. Taking place across the seafront each year, it attracts some of the best display teams in the world as well as vintage aircraft, wing-walkers, stunt planes plus plenty of live entertainment and food stalls.
    3. Bandstand
      The famous bandstand hosts live music throughout the summer months covering a wide variety of performers including big bands, military bands, tribute acts, musicals and more.
    4. Flower Power
      It’s also famed for the stunning flower displays that line the seafront. During WWII many of these displays and areas of local park were dug up and used to grow vegetables to help with the war effort. The Grand Hotel was used to house RAF offices.
    5. On The Move
      It’s not just people, buildings sometimes need removals too. Fearing the impact of coastal erosion, Beachy Head’s Belle Tout lighthouse was placed on a hydraulic platform and the entire building move further inland. The first lighthouse in the area was built in 1828 by local MP, ‘Mad’ Jack Fuller.
    6. Beachy Head
      The countryside around Beachy Head is considered an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and makes up part of the South Downs National Park. It’s home to rare and protected species and some native flora and fauna that can only be found in this part of Britain.
    7. Ghostbourne
      The occultist Alistair Crowley lived and was buried in the area, his temple banners and ‘magical instruments’ were buried on Beachy Head but costal erosion lead to them becoming dislodged and they were discovered by tourists on the beach below. The lighthouse has its own ghost after a watchman was found hanged in the stairwell. In 2001 a local group of witches ‘cleansed’ the whole area of Beachy Head.
    8. Conquered
      Nearby Pevensy is where William the Conquerer landed his army en route to the battle that changed the course of English history.
    9. Anyone For Tennis?
      The biggest and most famous event to hit town each year is the Eastbourne International held at Devonshire Park Lawn Tennis Club. Part of the ATP tour it attracts some of the biggest names in ladies tennis and has been won by names including; Martina Navratilova, Monica Seles, Chris Evert, Virginia Wade, Caroline Wozniacki, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin.
