The Waterfront

A beautiful May Day in Eastbourne - where there was a "French Market" on the waterfront harbour - bought a couple of bunches of asparagus and a whole lot of french cheeses...mmm. The sun was shining and the boats were moored while their owners meandered through through the stalls or had lunch at the various restaurants.

Eating Out

And when you have strolled and bought your French produce - take a seat and wait to be served a huge latte by a hunky Italian waiter. Lunch for two (no starter, no wine and no dessert) came to over twenty quid.

Eastbourne Pier - 11.30pm on a warm June evening - it's almost tropical.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:This is as chic as the south coast of England gets!
  • Cons:Can't think of any today.
  • In a nutshell:Bring your wallet.

    I've been to Beachy Head (and Eastbourne?) when I was 18 or 19 and took a 2 weeks course in the Eurocentre in Forest Hill.

    Ornamental cabbages? You must be joking, right? Thanks for not taking any photos of them! I have always liked the looks of those chalk cliffs, but I hope they don't all erode and fall into the sea.

    The food here was terrible&costly.They vacuumed as we ate,I complained politely,but the owners went mad, shouting at us&as we left he even insulted the way I was dressed!An embarrassment to the beautiful East Sussex.

    The cliffs look amazing, and I would love to spend some time having tea in that lovely bookshop.
