Eastbourne derives its name from a stream called the Burne, or Bourne, which ran through the old town. The site of the present-day town was occupied by four villages: East Bourne (or Old Town), South Bourne, Meads and Sea Houses. The town began to grow rapidly in the 18th century as the fashion arose to visit the coast for the medicinal benefits of sea air and sea bathing, and providing for holidaymakers is still its principal business today. www.eastbourne.org

Eastbourne bandstand
Bandstand built in 1931. The first bandstand was built  in 1893, with a Municipal Orchestra formed in 1899.

Eastbourne pier
Eastbourne pier was built in 1870. A storm destroyed the landward part in 1877 and the pier was rebuilt at a higher level. The National Piers Society www.piers.co.uk has many articles on British piers, including old photographs of many of them, both surviving and lost.

Eastbourne seafront kiosk
Despite the flapping deckchair, this was a warm August afternoon. Eastbourne has an excellent sunshine record, and claims to be the sunniest place in Britain, along with Jersey, Bournemouth and Weymouth, depending on the criteria chosen to determine "sunniest".

West end of King Edward's Parade
West end of King Edward's Parade, you can walk along the top road, middle path or lower broad promenade by the shore, with plenty of seats at intervals. Most of the seats have memorial inscriptions to residents who were fond of the seafront area.

Wooden beach groyne
I am always amazed how beach timbers survive the seawater and battering they get, considering what happens to my humble garden fence in a very short amount of time. A good warm place to sit when the stones get too lumpy to bear.

Shingle beach
Beaches are all stony, with meagre sand

Rocky beach
West end of King Edward's Parade, natural rocks, despite the bit of concrete in the photo

Western end of King Edward's Parade
The western end of King Edward's Parade, a good smooth place to play with your rollerblades

View towards Beachy Head
View westwards to Beachy Head, rising 162 metres (530 feet). The cliffs are continually eroding into the sea, from attack by shingle thrown at the base by the high tide, and weakening of the chalk by water/ice penetration at the cliff top during winter. Erosion of half to 1 metre per year takes place, keeping the cliff faces pure white.

View over Eastbourne from top of Beachy Head
View over Eastbourne from the west side of Beach Head. You can climb up from below, or drive to the top where there is some parking, toilet facilities and a pub.
