Stroll along the prom, stop and play crazy golf where the world champions fight for the trophy each year, ride the caterpillar at the funfair or spend a 'penny' to win a fortune at one of the amusement arcades, before continuing along to the newly rebuilt Hastings pier and St.Leonards beyond.

With the historic properties of Battle Abbey, Bodiam Castle, Charleston and Rudyard Kiplings family home of Batemans amongst many others all a short drive away, there is a wealth of things to do if you want to spend a day exploring East Sussex and its beautiful countryside.

The World famous gardens of Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Pashley Manor are wonderful to explore and for those who like a glass or two, why not try the award winning vineyards of Sedlescombe, Carr Taylor and Chapel Down, which are also nearby.
