7 Things to Do in Bexhill-on-Sea That You Shouldn't Miss

March 2, 2018 Veronika Gaddis

Bexhill-on-Sea (often simply Bexhill) is a seaside town situated in the county of East Sussex in South East England. An ancient town and part of the local-government district of Rother, Bexhill is home to a number of archaeological sites, a Manor House in the Old Town, an abundance of Edwardian and Victorian architecture, and the famous De La Warr Pavilion: today a centre for contemporary art – which has featured the work of Andy Warhol, Cerith Wyn Evans and Richard Wilson amongst others – and an auditorium, where Bob Marley had his first UK appearance and has since seen performances by Elvis Costello, Goldfrapp, Ray Davies, Years and Years, Pati Smith and Lauri Anderson.

Egerton Park

Reviewed By BargeeGirl - West Sussex, United Kingdom

This is a lovely park with great walks meandering over the Bridges. Undercover Seating if rainiing. Great play arae for kids. Love the willow walk for the kids and the dinosaur sculptures. Pretty borders. something for everyone, but just a shame about the rubbish in the water which makes it look shabby.

Bexhill Beach

Reviewed By Bryan C - Bexhill-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Bexhill Promenade and beach are lovely whatever's the weather. We walk here regularly and always find it clean and tidy. Locals work voluntarily to do regular beach cleans. There are clear signs directing the walkers to other parts of the town

Bexhill Museum

Reviewed By peck8 - Kidlington, United Kingdom

This museum is full of interesting artefacts, several of which you are allowed to touch. There are lots of activities to interest the children such as pictures to hunt for in the collections, dressing up, dinosaurs to play with, motors to watch and puzzles. There is local and natural history in the first room then costumes in the second room with toys and cars downstairs. Eddie Izzard's train set was great and we loved looking at all the little features.
The lady that worked there was amazing - pointing out things that she knew my son would like; showing us details we might miss and explaining how things worked.
A great little museum to spend an hour or two in. Very friendly, welcoming and informative.

Went to a gig here , the Damned as pictured, and was really impressed .
Wonderful venue , great sound, lots of space , bars with food options too
Bouncers unnecessarily over zealous with someone who thrown contents of beer can on stage, it was a punk gig after all !
But overall a great experience .

Manor Gardens

Reviewed By jamanews - East Sussex, United Kingdom

Well maintain garden and manor house. This place offers a relaxation haven...winter, summer and Spring.
Best time to explore is during the Spring and summer months, but the autumn colours can be equally beautiful. easy reach from Bexhill-On Sea rail station or the 99 bus that runs along the coast from Hastings to Eastbourne, passing the Manor Gardens in Old Bexhill town.
