Town and city breaks in East Sussex

If you are looking for a hotel in Brighton, Best Western has several to choose from with elegant decor and ideal locations. This is the city where the bacchanalian Prince Regent came to Brighton to spread his wings and party hard during the late 18th century. Booking a city break in Brighton places you right in the middle of one of the most exciting, eccentric and cosmopolitan cities in the UK. Stroll along Brighton beach, sampling locally caught seafood on your way, and stopping for a drink at one of the many bars with terraces stretching out onto the shingled beach. Shop down the famous North Laines and party into the early hours at Life or Honey Club. Eastbourne is the perfect place for a seaside town break with its beach hut-lined prom and fish and chip shops selling the seaside classic wrapped up in crinkled and vinegary newspaper. Explore the winding, cobbled streets of the picturesque village of Lewes, the town famous throughout the south-east for its spectacular bonfire night and fireworks display. For the best seafood along the coast, head to the traditional fishing village of Rye, a delightful hillside town that must be visited no matter where your East Sussex hotel is located.

Holidays in the East Sussex countryside

East Sussex boasts beautiful countryside in every direction, The South Downs National Park covering an area of 627 square miles. Hike the famous Devil's Dyke Way, or climb to the top of the infamous Beachy Head. Hire a kayak and paddle down the meandering Cuckmere River, or visit Ashdown Forest and roam with the Muntjac deer through 6500 acres of magical woodlands.

Beach holidays in East Sussex

Our East Sussex hotel based in Brighton is located on the beautiful and vibrant King's Road, parallel to the ocean's lapping tide and a stone's throw away from the famous pier. Brighton and Eastbourne's pebbly beaches are the sun-worshippers heaven during the summer with Eastbourne's annual air show, ‘Airbourne,' being a must-see event if you're on the south coast. For a beautiful sandy beach head to Camber and climb the long ridges of sand dunes that line the expanse of sand.

Attractions in East Sussex

If you're cooped up with the kids at your hotel in East Sussex, take a trip to Drusilla's Adventure Park in Berwick and find yourself nose-to-nose with meerkats or participating in the always popular feeding-time at the penguin enclosure. Head to the historic town of Battle and visit the 1066 visitor centre for all the details about William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings. Herstmonceux Observatory provides a guaranteed educational fun-filled day out whilst a trip to Glyndebourne Opera House adds a touch of grandeur to your break, staging six operatic productions throughout the summer in the stunning 1,200-capacity opera house. Why not take in the quintessentially-English countryside of this beautiful coastal county? Take a drive around the Downs and visit the scenic towns of Afriston, Rye and Winchelsea. Book a Best Western hotel in East Sussex and enjoy a restful and charming UK short break.
