Travel direct to the laid-back seaside town of Bexhill in around one hour and 45 minutes from London Victoria.
Once you’ve arrived, the station is just under a five-minute walk from the De La Warr Parade, where you can take in some great views over the sea before heading down on to the beach, which won a Quality Coast Award in 2007. Find out about the facilities at Bexhill station.
There are plenty of other activities to enjoy here too, including windsurfing and sailing. And you can enjoy mini golf, tennis or a go for a spin on the boating lake at the town’s Egerton Park.
Things to do in Bexhill
Just 15 minutes’ from the train station, Bexhill Museum shines a light on the town’s history as the birthplace of British motor racing. It was here that the first automobile races in the country were held, and you can see some of the vehicles that took part at the Technology Collection.
Additional exhibitions feature sea shells and dinosaur fossils alongside artefacts from ancient Egypt, as well as some period clothing dating back to the 17th century.
De La Warr Pavilion art gallery
Housed in a Grade One-listed building right on the seafront, the De La Warr Pavilion art gallery is around 10 minutes’ walk from the station.
The galleries here feature temporary and permanent exhibitions of sculpture, painting and photography.
This is also where you’ll find a large, 1930s auditorium that hosts concerts, comedy and cinema.
