Seaside resort which is said to be the “sunniest place in the UK”. It’s history goes back to the medieval period when it was just a village. It then grew into a seaside town during the 18th century thanks to the Duke of Devonshire. During WWII, Eastbourne was frequently attacked by the Nazis as it was considered one of the possible landing sites for an invasion and its famous hotels were often used as field hospitals. Today, tourism is one of the main sources of income for the town where many Londoners come to stay to make the most of the sun. One of the main attractions is the pier which suffered a fire in 2014, but has since been repaired.
