Little beats relaxing in in a modern coffee bar and lounge with unbeatable views across the sea front as you watch the world go by. At the Burlington Hotel you can enjoy all this in a central location close to all of Eastbourne’s finest attractions.
The world-famous Carpet Gardens, Redoubt Fortress and Eastbourne Pier are all just a stone’s throw away and the town centre with an array of shops and restaurants are just a 10 minute walk away.
The South Downs National Park begins just outside of town and is easily accessible and even by walking you can easily reach Beachy Head and a little further along the coast, The Seven Sisters. Fashionable Brighton is on the other end of a scenic train ride through the park and here you can see famous sights such as the fashionable Royal Pavilion or enjoy independent shops in The Lanes area of the city.
The hotel has great spaces for relaxing after a busy day in the area, the on-site bar and coffee lounge have huge windows opening out onto the seafront, great for watching the world go by. In the restaurant you can enjoy fantastic meals at breakfast and in the evening, with great and varied menus cooked by our dedicated chefs. For even greater space and comfort why not upgrade to a standard plus, superior or premier room during your stay?
Jaunt to Michelham Priory
A former Augustine Priory, established in the 13th century, Michelham Priory contains a number of historic buildings all of which are Grade I or Grade II listed. The condition of the buildings is of particular note, being between 400 and 800 years old, many with original features to a large extent. The mill was restored to full working order in the 1990s and is a fascinating example of how these watermills worked. There are a number of other attractions at the priory that showcase how the sight has functioned through its history.
Rye And Battle
With its cobbled streets and timber framed houses the town of Rye has a beautiful centre, great for wandering around for a couple of hours. Walking up to the castle allows for great views across out to Dungeoness and the English Channel. We'll then carry onto Battle, which grew up around an Abbey built on the exact spot where Harold, King of England died during the Battle of Hastings. The ruins of the Abbey and Battlefield give an interesting history of the battle and its effect on more than 950 years of British history.
